|chalk life forever- dudleya caespiotos|
With ghostly blue- green foliage coated in chalky white, it's an eye-catching garden accent throughout the seasons. The rosette of nearly two-inch-wide leaves reaches up and out like a fountain, brilliant against ground-carpeting natives with colorful blooms, like the late-winter blue of 'Centennial' California lilac (Ceanothus'Centennial') and the summer-to- fall crimson of ‘Everett's Choice' California fuschia (Epilobium canum ssp. latifollum 'Everett's Choice'].

This distinctive genus also includes tlie stunning Dudleya brittonii, with a sea-green glow to its broad, chalky leaves, and D. caespitosa, with finger-like dumping foliage. Dudleyas are a part of every native garden I design, and I'm always confident my clients will fall in love with these California beauties.
