Dyckia hybrids (Red Seedlings) - This succulent has rosettes of spine-margined reddish leaves and orange flowers that rise on branched inflorescences to 2 to 3 feet. These seedlings were selected for their red color from seedlings of the dark red Dyckia hybrid that we call Dyckia 'Jim's Red'. Plant in bright light (sun best along coast) to enhance dark red color. Good drainage and occasional to very little irrigation.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Dyckia hybrids (Red Seedlings).
