Dyckia 'Red Devil' (Red-leafed Dyckia) - This succulent forms clumps of 12 inch tall by 15 inch wide rosettes of deep-green leaves overlayed with rich rusty-red whose color intensifies in full sun. In late spring appear the small orange flowers that rise on slender 2-3 foot tall slightly-branching inflorescences. Plant in bright light (full sun best along coast) to enhance the dark color. Give good drainage and occasional to very little irrigation. Attractive to hummingbirds.
