Growing among the rocks


Liveforever (Dudleya farinosa), a member of the stonecrop family, flowering on Bodega Head on 17 July 2016.  Recently I encountered another name for this species Powdery Dudleya.  I like it!  

P.S.  The species name, "farinosa," means "powdery," referring to the fact that the leaves are sometimes gray-green (although not in this case).
