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 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 'Silvertooth Tiger'.
