Dudleya greenii

Common Name: Channel Islands Powder Rosettes

Dudleya greenei, commonly known as Channel Islands Powder Rosettes has rounded, anemone-like leaves, slightly purple, are covered with a chalk-white powder. They grow in clusters and are best tucked into rock gardens between rocks, and in nooks and crannies, where they will clump to about a foot wide, but never taller than a few inches. Also beautiful in container gardens. Native to the Channel Islands off of the coast of California, it is appropriate that they resemble some kind of marine creature dwelling in a crystal clear tide pool. Actively growing in winter, they take a rest in the summer, when they prefer less water as well.
