This, one of the most colorful Dyckia in our collection and a probable hybrid between D. platyphylla and D. leptostachya, grows to 10-15" high and 18" or so wide in reasonable time with elegantly spined rosettes of deep olive green, burnished intense red, more so with more light. Spring and summer flowers are of burnt orange atop 2' stalks. One surprise is the reported frost hardiness, with some testimonials to 8 °F though we'd be a bit skittish there; we're more confident in the mid teens briefly, mid USDA zone 8, probably colder if dry. Fine container plant, a bit slow growing and offsetting so will remain within bounds for some time.
