This species is threatened by a number of urban development activities, and is limited to only eleven sites in the wild. It was listed as Federally Endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1997. (USFWS 1997) This species occurs in a very unique habitat, and is unique even among other species in the Dudleya genus. This species has a flowering stalk that grows from 5 to 18 cm in length, tipped with pale yellow flowers that are often flecked with red on the keel. The fact that this species has yellow flowers distinguishes it from other local Dudleya species, which all have white flowers. These other local Dudleya species are evergreen, while the Conejo live-forever is vernal, with its rosette of linear leaves withering by early summer. (USFWS 1997, 1999, 2002)
