DYCKIA ‘Big Black’ <1980

cv. of unknown parentage Notes from Dutch Vandervort, Feb 2010 Again, from memory, I was once told that the plant had first been noticed in the garden of Molly Sheffield of the Houston Texas area. I never met Molly but was given pups by a friend in New Orleans, Jim Georgusis, who had a few pups of the plant and passed 1 or 2 on to me. In fact, in the early days the plant was most often referred to as "Molly's Big Black."
