Dudleya edulis or Ladyfingers are named for its long finger-like cylindrical leaves. It is an evergreen succulent that grows up to 8 inches tall and a foot wide. It produces pink to white flowers from several branching flower clusters in the spring and summer. Several of these dudleya can be found below the staircase that leads up from the road on the Park’s north east side. Others can be found at the south west entrance to the Yawkey Trail.
