About This Plant

Santa Catalina Dudleya is a groundcover succulent, with chalky, blue-grey finger-like leaves.  It grows in shade to full sun and will attain a height of 6 inches and a spread of 3 feet. White star-like flowers with yellow centers occur on slender, 12-inch stems in spring.  In the California garden, Dudleyas provide a nice accent or understory groundcover along a path, in front of a border, or near a rock.  In a container any Dudleya looks great as a companion plant or by itself.  Dudleya hassei can be found on steep cliffs and rocky outcrops on the bluffs of Santa Catalina Island. It prefers infrequent deep watering. It is easy to grow and tolerant of many conditions.  It will perform best in coastal situations.
