Dichondra Seed

Dichondra Seed (Dichondra Repens) - Dichondra is a small leafed matting perennial native to the southeastern states, has received considerable attention in recent years as a lawn substitute or ground cover in the South and on the West Coast in the U.S., in Greece, Italy and Spain.  Dichondra is also known as lawn leaf or pony foot, Dichondra spreads by under ground runners or stolons. The small kidney shaped leaves, about a half inch across, have a tendency to grow somewhat larger, with longer stems, in shade. In its massed effect, dichondra has the appearance of clover, and the resulting thick sod is usually 1.5 - 2 inches high. Dichondra is surprisingly tolerant as far as various types of soil are concerned, and has proved to be successful in both the sun and shade.

Planting Directions
Dichondra can be grown from seed very easily.  The recommended seeding rate for coated Dichondra is 3 pounds of seed per 1,000 square feet.  The best time to sow Dichondra is from March through May; midsummer planting will germinate faster but will need careful, frequent waterings.  Planting early will produce sturdy root systems that can take mid-summer heat and some water stress.
