Dudleya candida is an exceptional Dudleya with very white leaves, even whiter than Dudleya brittonii, which is renown for its beautiful powdery white leaves. Candida is Latin for white. Native to Coronado Island and the coast of California. Divides dichotomously to form clusters of rosettes with pointed, thick lanceolate leaves to 3" in length that are covered with silvery white farinose powder. Flowers are greenish-yellow, appearing in late winter and spring. Bright light or full sun. In habitat, most Dudleyas and Echeverias grow on rocky outcroppings, at higher altitudes.In this habitat, the water drains quickly away from the roots of the plant, never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged. For this reason, it is essential in cultivation to use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage. Frost tolerant, but best to give frost protection to prevent scarring.
