Dyckia choristaminea 'Frazzle Dazzle'
Spaghetti bowl Dyckia! This Dyckia is versatile and tough. The small mature size and non lethal spines makes it touchable, easily manageable and quite suitable for pot culture. Its tolerance to cold (temperatures down into the low teens for brief periods) also make it adaptable to being grown outdoors, in zone 8b south. Like most in the genus, it can tolerate periods of drought. But if a summer monsoon takes hold it will revel in the abundant moisture. A rosette of this clone is composed of numerous, spaghetti thin, 6 in. long leaves that are generally gray with plum undertones. The late spring, 10 in. tall flower spikes are topped with large, fragrant, yellow flowers - adding another showy element to this easy to touch and love Dyckia.
