Plants in Arrakeen palace greenhouse (Frank Herbert's Dune, 2000, Sci-Fi Channel)

An incense bush is a shrub that was planted on the planet Arrakis during the ecological transofmration program begun by Pardot Kynes.

Presumably, this plant was named thus because its leaves were used for creating incense.

Appearances in adaptations[]

  • Dune (2021) - The incense bush is among a number of hardy desert ecosystem plants capable of surviving in the deserts of Arrakis, mentioned in Paul's filmbook: "What scant plant life exists on Arrakis is thanks to the Fremen, who have cultivated deep-rooted terranic plants, such as saguaro, burrobush, sand-verbenna and Incense bush. The shepherd's tree has the deepest documented roots, stretching more than 450 feet deep. These plants cling to life in a parched, nutrient-poor landscape."
