Dudleya pachyphytum is a ground-hugging and slowly-clumping succulent that could grow up to1 foot tall by 2 feet wide . with a thick basal stem from which form many branches bearing 5 to 10 inch wide rosettes of interesting leaves that are unlike all other Dudleya. These leaves are very thick, somewhat blunt at the tips and rounded on the edges and have a beautiful white waxy coating. In mid-summer appears the long inflorescence, slightly pink at the base but otherwise covered with the same white coating as the leaves and bearing tight cymes of pale green to whitish flowers. These flowers barely open but are decorated with the same white waxy coating as with the inflorescence stems and leaves. Plant in a very well-drained soil in full sun to bright light - give some protection in inland hot sun. Hardy to at least 18. This is a great plant for the rock garden, a crack in a rock or wall or as a container specimen. (Some of this info has been found at smgrowers)
