Dyckia sp.

Dyckia sp.

Family bromeliaceae
Life cycle perennial
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well drained soil

Spiny-leaved bromeliad. Our specimen came from the sale table at Peckerwood Garden, unidentified as to species or variety, but quite nice. It's living in our rock garden, where it should do nicely. This species has survived at Peckerwood, a ways north of us, for years so it should be hardy in our garden. It's not a xeriscape plant like the agaves, but does tolerate a good bit of drought.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: Houston rock garden
