Dyckia 'Silver Superstar' - A beautiful succulent plant with flattened 1 foot wide rosettes of pale pink-tinged silvery leaves and orange flowers in summer. This is one of the slowest growing and attractive Dyckia that we grow - a choice specimen plant for the garden or pot. 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 'Silver Superstar' to differentiate it as one of many untagged Dyckia forsteriana hybrids 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 our research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery and our own landscape plantings and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have 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 'Silver Superstar'
