Dyckia noelli

The name is not valid yet. The main characteristic of this jewel besides being extremely charming is the fact it bears almost none spine. Yes it is almost spineless.
Native to Northeastern Santa Catarina was seen by the first time as a novelty by Mrs. Noeli.
The contrast between the upper and the lower surface of the leaves is striking. The center of the crown is much more silvery. It bears very beautiful and large orange flowers for a Dyckia.
