Dyckia splendens is a Santa Catarina native to Dyckia species

This plant is  a recent finding and a very beautiful one.
It may be found in green, reddish and silver types.
It is a self fertile plant, this will allow me to get true pure species seeds here, hopefully lucky some green, some red and some silver type forms will come up from this plant.

This plant is a late Summer bloomer and its flower stalk  is impressive in many ways.
It is well branched and these branches arch downwardly. Each one bears two  parallel rows of tiny yellow flowers.
