Dudleya is a large genus of about 40 species, many of which are native to California and northern Mexico. Only a handful are common in cultivation and many are on the endangered species list. A few can only be found on some of the islands off the California coast. Most Dudleyas flower in late winter to early spring, and flower colors range from white, to yellow to bright red. D. lanceolata is a native of Southern California and Baja California as well. It is a solitary species with very fleshy, tender, lance-like, dull-green leaves. These are winter growers, often being dormant in summers. Watering some Dudleyas in the summer can simply kill them, so best to seriously reduce summer watering and be sure they are in very well-draining soil and full sun.
