Dudleya brittonii (Giant Chalk Dudleya) A solitary or low slowly-clumping succulent with a beautiful 12 to 18 inch wide rosette of chalky-white leaves surrounding a thick basal stem. Stout silvery-white 1 to 2 foot long spikes arch upward and blush red as the clusters of yellow flowers begin to open in late spring to early summer. Plant in a well-drained soil in full sun along the coast but looks best with part sun in hotter inland locations.
ZONE: 9b, 10, 11b
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: full sun to part shade
Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

I ordered 2 of these. One was beautiful and looked just like the pictures above. The 2nd one had a rough trip. I've planted and watered them, so I can hope it revives.
He was damaged in transit unfortunately. He is like all the other succulents though... and hardy/sturdy still. I'm not worried about a few leaves! I know he will be happier soon. Transit can't always be perfect. Luckily I know he was sent happy already!
