Dyckia 'Brittle Star' hybrids - This succulent has rosettes of spine-margined leaves that are silver to very dark purple black. Plant in bright light (sun best along coast) to enhance silver color. Good drainage and occasional to very little irrigation. Should prove hardy to at least 20 F. This variable crop of many beautiful plants came from seed received in 2010 from Nick Wilkinson of Grow Nursery from a cross of Dyckia 'Brittle Star' with another Dyckia that was done by Rob Skillin.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate 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 'Brittle Star' hybrids.
