Canyon Liveforever

Description

The Canyon Liveforever is a California native plant. It is a hearty succulent plant that tends to grow from cracks in rocks. It displays several beautiful pink and yellow flowers in the spring. The flowers are grouped in clusters at the end of stocks which protrude from the thick-leafed base of the plant.

The color of the base, leaves and stocks can vary greatly. Possible colors can be pink, reddish-pink, green, reddish-green and gray-green.

Those we have observed in the San Gabriel mountains tend to have shorter stocks ranging from approximately 1 to 10 inches. (Unlike the Palmer's Liveforever which can have very long stocks greater than 3 feet.)

The bloom period for Canyon Liveforever is April, May, June and July.

Family: Stonecrop (Crassulaceae).

Field Notes

We have seen several plants along the lower section of the Mt Baldy ski lift service road, in the higher elevations of the San Gabriel Mountains.
