Dudleya brittonii, Mission Trails Park, California. These very attractive, Echevaria-like succulents are fairly common in California. They tend to grow on vertical rock faces and on steep hillsides near areas where water seeps. Considering the arid Southern California landscape, plants here sometimes develop fairly extraordinary abilities to collect water.
