Dyckia splendens

Native to Santa Catarina This magnificent Dyckia species finally emits
its flower stalks in my garden. They became noticable in last November and the flowers are due to late Summer.

Below you may notice the flower stalks.
Extra care will be taken in order to produce legitimate true  species seeds.
In nature  it was found a sole green  form, a red one and also a sole silver one. I do hope to get
all four types from these seeds here as this plant presents all these colors itself.

This, with no doubt, is one of the most beautiful of all Dyckias.
