What Houzz contributors are saying:

How to use it. Liveforever is native to cliffs, rocky outcroppings and other free-draining vertical sites. This accounts for its affinity for slopes, which can serve as inspiration for your own garden. It cannot tolerate standing water on its rosettes — or even on its roots — over summer, so a slope or wall that would otherwise be a troubling site is the perfect spot. Planting at an angle is preferred.Liveforever also grows well in pots and containers. And, as with most succulents, it grows well in rock gardens. Use it as a specimen or allow its chalky color to complement and contrast other succulents; its spring inflorescence will diversify the garden greatly. Due to its preference for bright light, liveforever is not the best houseplant. Shown: Dudleya pulverulenta
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Planting Ideas: Life in the Crevices
Perhaps the current fad of vertical gardens is a bit too grand for your aesthetic. If you prefer something a bit subtler and more natural-looking, consider planting in rock walls or in narrow spaces between boulders. All that is required is a small crevice, a bit of knowledge about microclimates and plants, and some ingenuity.Shown: Dudleya

are a plant collector, like I am, you will at some point come to the sobering conclusion that only a finite number of plants can be squeezed into each square foot of your garden space. Human nature dictates that you will try to fit more in anyway, only to be frustrated as your plants succumb to overcrowding and eventual death. However, there may be hidden spots waiting for transformation into something unique and beautiful.

Can be planted on slopes. It cannot tolerate standing water on its rosettes or even on its roots - over summer, so a slope or wall that would otherwise be a troubling site is the perfect spot. Planting at an angle is preferred. Avoid watering over summer and give it more regular water in winter. To prevent fungus, remove dead leaves at the base of plant. To avoid topsy-turvy plants, cut mature trunks in fall; let cutting dry out a couple of days and plant it back in well-drained soil for a tidy, well-packaged plant.
