Dichondra Repens - This is a perennial ground cover plant that has a prostrate or creeping growth habit with circular leaves and complete margins developed from Dichondra seed. It grows very low to the ground (normally not more than 2 inches tall) and is a fast growing ground cover in warm season.
It is adapted to warmer climates but during winter temperatures it will retain its striking green color as low as 20-25 degrees Farenheit with only slight browning of the leaf. Dichondra has wide, nearly circular leaves (looks like a clover) and a thick dense carpet look is established when mowed low. Dichondra is now used in many cases of ground cover where standard grasses may not do as well. It's got a bright green color and a very good underfoot feel.
