Dyckia “Silver Superstar”

This an evergreen bromeliad with silvery foliage and bright orange flowers. It can be found on Silver Hill. Grows best in zones 9A to11 and is very drought tolerant. Gets up to about 6″ tall and 12″ wide, so it also makes a great container plant as well. Very slow growing, it can handle temps down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. We have a couple of other Dyckias as well, another one will be blooming soon, so come see them now in their full glory!
