Plant Description: Formerly known as Dichondra repens, this is a warm season ground cover that grows close to the ground. It has broad, almost circular leaves and when mown low establishes a thick dense carpet look. Originally a weed, it is now used in many ground cover situations where normal grasses may not do as well. It has a bright green color and a cushion feel underfoot. The tiny, yellowish-green flowers form mostly in summer, but can appear at any time of the year, the fruit that is left is hairy with two-lobed capsules. Dichondra repens is a small, prostrate, herbaceous plant native to New Zealand and many parts of Australia. It is commonly known as kidney weed in Australia and as Mercury Bay weed in New Zealand.

Best Uses: Lawn substitute (Low traffic areas), ground cover in a part sun position.
