Dudleya greenei is a rare succulent plant known by the common name Greene's liveforever, or Greene's dudleya. It is endemic to the Channel Islands of California, where it grows along the cliffs of four of the eight islands.
Dudleya greenei grows from a small, thick caudex a few centimeters wide and produces rosettes of fleshy, pointed leaves up to 11 centimeters long. The inflorescence is borne on an erect peduncle up to 40 centimeters tall. The peduncle and foliage are variably green and pink. The inflorescence branches at the top and holds many fleshy yellowish flowers.
