Dyckia brevifolia var. golden glow

Dyckia brevifolia is native to Itajaí River Valley in Santa Catarina.
This one  went out on a very long journey up North to USA...

One day two years ago it came back home......and with  radical new fancy look...

This is one of the most beautiful man made betterings on ornamental plants.
This variety is capable of transmiting its yelowish glow to its progeny by seeds and not only by cloning.
The intensity and the amount of yellow depends on the amout of fertilization and exposition to light.
