Location:

Chalk Dudleya is an attractive succulent that slowly forms 1' wide and tall rosettes. Leaves are thick and chalky looking. Basal stem may be 2" wide. During spring and summer, silvery vertical stalks bear reddish flowers. This plant does well in coastal areas needing no summer irrigation. In warmer inland areas, this plant does best with afternoon shade. It needs well draining soil. It tolerates winter and spring irrigation. Plant at an angle so water drains easily. Great plant for containers, crevices, rock gardens.  Information by: PlantMaster
