Grow them in pots, tuck them into rock walls or let them multiply happily in a raised rock garden – all you need is good drainage to succeed with these everlasting natives of California and Oregon's coastal bluffs. Stunning chalky blue-white leaves create dense succulent rosettes to 1' across bearing 1' stems crowned by clusters of vivid yellow urn-shaped blooms from May to September. Thrives in low fertility - driest conditions bring out the extra showy red coloring on both leaf tips and stems. Native to San Francisco!
