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.  The information about Dyckia 'Silvertooth Tiger' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable. We will also relate those observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others and welcome hearing from anyone who has additional information, particularly when they share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
