Dyckia 'Silver Superstar' - A beautiful succulent plant with flattened 1 foot wide rosettes of pale pink-tinged silvery leaves and orange flowers in summer. This is one of the slowest growing and attractive Dyckia that we grow - a choice specimen plant for the garden or pot. 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 'Silver Superstar' to differentiate it as one of many untagged Dyckia forsteriana hybrids dug up and propagated from the Santa Barbara garden of the late Jim Prine.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Dyckia 'Silver Superstar'.
