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 on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated 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 'Silvertooth Tiger'.
