Here the new found one Dyckia.
Rare in many many ways it is a Dyckia retzii relative.
It blooms the very same way as reitzii does.
Petals are red and the flowers are very close together and present a tegument, a kind of white wool around the bracts. Presumably to protect flowers from the extremely cold winds.
