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 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 hybrid "Red Seedlings".
