Dudleya pulverulenta (Chalk Liveforever) A ground-hugging slowly-clumping succulent with beautiful 12 to 18 inch wide rosettes of chalky-white leaves surrounding a 2 inch thick basal stem. Stout silvery-white1 to 2 foot long spikes arch upwards and bear clusters of reddish flowers in late spring to early summer. Plant in a well-drained soil in full sun along the coast but looks best with part sun in hotter inland locations. This plant can tolerate abundant winter and spring irrigation but it is best to plant at an angle to allow water to drain off and avoid overhead irrigation if you water at all in summer months – this plant tolerates going without irrigation in summer but can look better with careful watering below the foliage. Hardy to around 15 F or slightly below.
