Silver Falls Dichondra Ground Cover Seeds



Doesn't mind heat and drought

Let your hanging baskets and sunny annual bed really gleam this year with Silver Falls, the stunning foliage plant that sports velvety-soft silvery leaves, glistening silver stems, and a "never-say-quit" cascading habit that spreads up to 5 feet.

Vigorous and easy to grow, this Dichondra is simply one of the showiest accents around for all your containers and bare garden spots. Its leaves have a thick, super-soft texture and neat fan shape, measuring about 3/4- to 1-inch long and wide. They arise profusely on very well-branched plants that need no pinching. Before you know it, this cascading beauty will be 3 to 5 feet long, though never more than about 3 inches tall.

Very heat- and drought-tolerant, Silver Falls recovers quickly even if wilted, and looks fresh all season long. Let it tumble around your Lisianthus, festoon your Dianthus, and wreathe your mums in spring-through-fall color.

Silver Falls thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. If you are using it as a ground cover in the garden, make sure that the soil doesn't get soggy underneath its glorious silver carpet.

This shopper rated the product 1 out of 5 stars

I have had good germination rates on everything I've purchased except for Dichondra " Silver Falls " 1 out of 25 so yes disappointed.

Does very well, but not the same color as the photo

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I've grown this the last three years with no issues. It looks great cascading from containers. My only complaint and reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that only the undersides of the leaves are silver.

Good Germination

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These seeds can be hard to come by so I sprang for this packet of 10. 8 germinated in peat pellets and all survived transplantation to a bigger pot. Very happy with this purchase and would repurchase.
