DICHONDRA, Silver Falls

Dichondra Silver Falls 3

Dichondra argentea

Small, rounded, pewter-coloured leaves which resemble miniature water lily pads or fans, make this a unique, trailing accent plant for hanging baskets and planters. Silver Falls is heat and drought-tolerant and will recover quickly if watered after it has wilted. Silver Falls performs as a low-growing groundcover or it adds a cool contrast to green foliage and vibrant coloured flowers.  Low maintenance plant.
