Finally, we get to the Native succulent found in habitat along the Sonoma Coast that you knew was there, but just weren’t sure I had found. Well, now you know.

Dudleya farinosa, aka Sea Lettuce

This great plant looks quite different in our nursery, after years of cultivation. Larger leaves, don’t you know. But here you see that they’re sticklers for rocky surfaces. Rocks, even. Crevices with barely a dollop of soil to grow in.

Tomorrow I’ll post photos from a different stand of them. More exposed.
