Dyckia sp (Vila Cristina - Caxias do Sul - RS)

This is a Dyckia for landscaping.
It is always an isolated plant and hardly ever pups.
Dyckia that seldom produces lateral sprouts normally tends to be huge and this is one of them.
The plants itself gets a meter high and one meter wide.
the flower spike is something that tries to reach the skies with mote than 3 meters high.
Produces uncountable little yellow flowers and ridiculous small seeds.
A astonishing breathtaking cliff jewel. Its spines get more than 3 cm on adult plants.
An insuperable plant for the landscaping a far superior one.
The adult plant is a true unforgettable image.
Produces many more leaves than the other counterparts and looks like giant spiny balls
hanging on the stony cliff.

  1. Many more leaves and black spines and somewhat shiny--interesting genes to play.
