Dyckia 'Silvertooth Tiger' - Beautiful succulent plant with compact rosettes of short dark burgundy recurved leaves that have bold silver-gray spines. Orange flowers in summer. Plant in full sun with little to occasional irrigation. Hardy to 20-25 F. This plant likely has another valid name but we named it 'Silvertooth Tiger' to differentiate it as one of many untagged Dyckia dug up and propagated from the Santa Barbara garden of the late Jim Prine. The image on this page courtesy of Steve Super Gardens.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Dyckia 'Silvertooth Tiger'.
