Exceptionally variable and widespread coastal species whose range spans from Santa Barbara southward to Punta Banda in Baja California. May be solitary (in which case the rosette is often larger, sometimes up to 18 inches) or branch profusely. Dwarf forms may have rosettes measuring 1 inch. Flowers are tubular and usually orange to red, but may also be yellow, purplish-red and very rarely green. Some rosettes may be easy to confuse with the larger D. brittonii, which is found toward the south of lanceolata's range.
