No gardener is ever nonchalant at first sight of this brilliantly chalky white CA native succulent. Forming a gorgeous, almost otherwordly blue-white rosette to 18" across, it better tolerates garden conditions than its well known cousin D. pulverulenta. That said, it does need most excellent drainage - think rock garden or sloped situation. EASY and stunning in a container! Arching, red stems in Summer hold yellow, urn-shaped blooms. Best appearance with only monthly water in Summer. Hardy to 15 degrees F. Deer resistant.
