Dudleya brittonii

It is a beautiful plant that naturally grows on steep cliffs between Tijuana and Ensenada in Baja California and can live up to 100 years. Often also called 'Britton's dudleya' in honor of the botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton, or 'Giant Chalk Dudleya' due to the characteristic white powder that covers its leaves to protect it from harmful UV rays. This rosette-shaped, white succulent with its long, lanceolate leaves reaches up to 50 cm in diameter. When the plant reaches its mature age, the leaves at the base dry out (but don't worry, it is normal). In spring, its beautiful yellow star-shaped flowers bloom from a long peduncle. A curios fact: when flowering, the plant itself tends to change the color, fading to red.
