Dyckia 'Alice' - Rosette forming terrestrial bromeliad to 18"wide with spine-margined dark red strap-shaped leaves and tall wands of orange flowers in late summer. Forms a dense clump up to 18 inches tall by several feet wide. Plant in full sun for best foliage color. Water infrequently. Hardy to down into the high teens F without damage. We received this plant untagged with a collection of plants from Alice Waidhofer. Originally we had this plant in a shady location where it was a a nice greenish-red color but we put a plant in the sun and the foliage turned a very nice dark red. Like the cultivar we call 'Jim's Red' but a little smaller and even redder.  The information presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations of it growing in our nursery crops, as well as in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing Dyckia 'Alice'.
