Dichondra argentea, D. repens
SILVER FALLS DICHONDRA SEEDS
Vigorous, easy to grow 3-4 inch tall cascading annuals carry soft, velvety, fan-shaped, silvery foliage which can spread 3-5 feet across. Very showy, it makes dramatic hanging baskets or an excellent temporary ground cover. Heat and drought tolerant, it needs only sun and well-drained soil to thrive.
EMERALD FALLS DICHONDRA SEEDS
'Emerald Falls' Dichondra, compared to 'Silver Falls,' grows fuller, not as long, with slightly more rounded deep green leaves. 'Emerald Falls' creates a dense, symmetrical, just clipped appearance that looks very attractive in hanging baskets (where it will trail about 2 feet over the edge). It also makes an outstanding low growing 2-4 inch ground cover. Like 'Silver Falls,' 'Emerald Falls' Dichondra is heat and drought tolerant, needing only sun and well-drained soil to thrive.
