Dudleya hassei (Catalina Island Live-Forever) - This succulent grows to only 6 inches tall and spreads to several feet wide with branching stems bearing rosettes of 2-4 inch long narrow chalky-gray leaves and small yellow-centered pale white flowers on 1 foot long stems in late spring. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and give infrequent deep watering. Hardy to around 25 F. A great small groundcover or pot subject. Attracts hummingbirds. This plant is native to rocks and cliffs on Catalina Island. The specific epithet honors Hermann Edward Hasse (1836-1915), botanist and medical doctor who studied California mosses and lichens in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Dudleya hassei.
