Dyckia choristaminea, the original form from Porto Alegre downtown


This wonderful  Dyckia choristaminea lived on a hill downtown Porto Alegre,
 the biggest metropolis South in Brazil.
Telecomunication antenna installation  destroyed its habitat and the two remaining  small populations.
This one here show off its beauty.
There are several choristaminea forms around Porto Alegre but this one bears the most beautiful and unusual flowers. Petals remember the Napoleon hat.
