This impressive huge Dyckia was by the road side close the the southern most point in
Santa Catarina some 1.200 meters high. It is a unknown one and bears black spines and blooms beautifully in thousands of tiny yellow flowers. See the already dried and mostly empty seed pods. I got just a very few seeds in spite the hugeness of the flower stalk. We got there too late to get seeds by the many.
Here my friends Djeines and Mileide for you to compare sizes.
Imagine this plant in a rock garden. It is a Dyckia and will never die by blooming and its bloom is something to remember, something like a huge yellow foam.
