Dichondra Repens
Also known as: Kidney Weed, Dichondra Pony Foot, or Lawn Leaf

This is one of our favorite versatile fun plants!
Dichondra is now used in many ground cover situations where normal grasses may not do as well. It grows very close to the ground, (usually not over 2 inches tall) with a creeping growth habit. It has a bright green color, establishes a thick dense carpet look, and a very good soft feel underfoot. When used in lawn situations it can be mowed for an even, smooth finish but should not need it.

It will cascade about 3 feet from your baskets, window boxes, or other containers, but it will also form a nicely domed shape that fills any available space, or crack beautifully!

And to top it all off, it is a popular ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine blends. Diuretic, febrifuge and styptic. The whole plant is used for treating diarrhea.

It is a fast growing perennial in warmer climates and a annual in frost heavy zones. It is also highly resistant to diseases and will grow in partial shade to full sun. The seed we offer is coated with a clay coating to make the seed easier to spread as well as help the seed retain water which aids in germination. The first leaves after germination will be long and narrow and will not look like dichondra in the beginning. Sow much like normal grass seed. USDA Zones: 8 - 11

This offer is for 3g (500+), 6g (1000+), or 12g (2000+) seeds.
