Dudleya pulverulenta grows in close proximity to the Pacific Ocean from central California into Baja California, Mexico. Subspecies arizonica is the desert form, which is smaller than typical D. pulverulenta but with rosettes of gray-white leaves. The flowers are tubular, upright, and orange to red in color. Even though this is a desert species, with a distribution from Nevada to Arizona and back into northeastern Baja California, it is still quite difficult to grow. These plants are seedlings in 5-inch pots.
