Plant Highlights

Native coastal central and southern California. An adaptable Live-Forever, it is found hanging on sunny seaside cliffs as well as flat areas. Clusters of yellow-red flowers held above high on 2’ stems above a beautiful rosette of long bluish leaves attract hummingbirds.. Grows in full sun to dappled light shade. Tolerates clay if summers are dry, does best on rocky slopes, stacked walls or containers. Looks great with Mimulus puniceus and the native Eriogonums as they bloom at the same time.

Dudleyas are susceptible to rot above ground if moisture accumulates in the rosette: plant them on a slight angle to drain water more quickly. Do not water in summer during dormancy unless grown in sandy soils or containers, then you can apply infrequent summer watering.
