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.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Dudleya hassei.
