Dudleyas

Patio plants at the start of fall in 3 gallon (10 inch) pots.

Thumb of 2017-10-05/Baja_Costero/59f991

These plants are native to the region. They ended up being part of this installation in the park from the fall (currently suffering after a dry winter)...

For some perspective, here's a group of 3 plants (same type as in the banner) that I put in the ground 2 years earlier, now having filled in the space. I'm hoping the group above does something similar.

Great banner Baja!

Dudleyas are one of my favorites.......great banner, Baja. Thumbs up

We have wild ones that are shriveled up during the summer, but come out after the rain
and get large and nicely powdered white. They grow in the hardest conditions, in rock cracks,
etc, but make a great potted plant or in a succulent garden.
