Almost lost to extinction, this California nativewas practically resurrected from just a few stumps left on the 1 square mile off Catalina in 1975. Endemic to this one island, introduced rabbits nearly annihilated them. Now, thanks to the National Park Service, there are several small populations, though it will probably remain on the endangered list. Forms a dense rosette of pointed, blue gray, succulent leaves. Yellow flower heads are held in clusters atop thick, upright, showy, red stems. Its native habitat is hot, dry, rocky slopes, so it will need sun & good to excellent drainage. Needs no Summer water once established. From the U.C. Botanical Garden Collection.  To 6” high & 6-12” wide.
