Dudleya Power!
Life on the EDGE with our favorite CA native succulent!

Like sugar-coated sea anemones, our California native Dudleyas are a delightful and unmistakable sight all along the California coastline, where they tenaciously cling to rocky outcroppings and ledges. Tough enough to roll with the punches of ocean-side dwelling, they make life on a cliff face look both easy and awesome. They're also incredibly adaptable, living long and prospering in the garden, where their splendid geometry and spectacular stems and blooms bring drought tolerant drama wherever they're planted. Plus, they're deer resistant and reliably loved by our native hummingbirds. So sweet!

How best to grow Dudleyas?

Well, there’s a reason they’re known by the common name “Liveforevers” – Dudleyas thrive on neglect and live, while not literally forever, pretty darn close.

They love and require well-drained soil, so primo locations include the edge of the garden bed, rockeries, well drained slopes, or in a container. In general, LESS water is more, as stress brings out their natural, beautiful dustiness and rosy color. A drink every two weeks during the driest part of the year should do it. Inlanders should grow Dudleyas in part shade, as these coastal cuties will sunburn where it’s hotter.
