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 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 'Brittle Star' hybrids.
