Dyckia 'Red Devil' (Red-leafed Dyckia) - This succulent forms clumps of 12 inch tall by 15 inch wide rosettes of deep-green leaves overlayed with rich rusty-red whose color intensifies in full sun. In late spring appear the small orange flowers that rise on slender 2-3 foot tall slightly-branching inflorescences. Plant in bright light (full sun best along coast) to enhance the dark color. Give good drainage and occasional to very little irrigation. Attractive to hummingbirds. This plant was sent to us by Yucca Do Nursery.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Dyckia 'Red Devil'.
