Dichondra Seed
Back

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.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Lawn, Groundcover, Erosion Control
  • Germination Time: 7 - 14 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Warm Season
  • Height: 1.5 - 2 inches 
  • Sunlight Requirements: 6 - 8 hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Ground-hugging growth habits, virtually maintenance free; useful for spots where normal grasses may not do well.
  • When to Plant: Recommended planting time is spring and summer when night time temperatures are consistently 65+ degrees and 3 months prior to first frost. 

 

Product Details

  • Non-GMO
  • Small leafed matting perennial
  • Great lawn substitute or ground cover
  • Spreads by under ground runners or stolon
  • Proven to be successful in both the sun and shade


Product Information

Dichondra is known as lawn leaf or pony foot; it 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. It is tolerant to various types of soil, and has proved to be successful in both the sun and shade.

Dichondra can be grown from seed very easily. The best time to sow Dichondra is from March through May; midsummer planting will germinate faster, but will need careful, frequent watering. Planting early will produce sturdy root systems that can take mid-summer heat and some water stress.

Caring for Dichondra Lawns:
Dichondra needs as much care as most grass lawns for a neat appearance. It needs regular, thorough waterings to maintain a deep root system, especially during hot weather. It also prefers frequent light fertilizing. Fertilize with the lightest application recommended, according to label directions, once every 2 to 3 weeks. 

Depending on what you want your Dichondra lawn to look like, you can mow it frequently, seldom or not at all. Grown in full sun and given lots of use, Dichondra stays low and even, needing mowing infrequently, if ever. Dichondra grown in the shade or given little use may need frequent mowing to give it an even appearance.

Mowing to 3/4” height (higher during hot weather to avoid stress) will encourage a small leafed, even Dichondra lawn, but you will need to mow it regularly. You can mow at a 1-1/2 to 2” height more infrequently; this will promote a less consistent texture and leaves of varying sizes.

If you mow Dichondra too close, you’ll get a scalped look; top dress it with a light  mulch to help it come back.

Dichondra flea beetle can devastate Dichondra lawns. The first signs of the disease are browning leaves with engraved lines where tissue has been gnawed.  To control, apply diazinon as soon as possible, following label directions carefully.

The best weed control is simply to keep your Dichondra lawn growing so luxuriantly that weeds cannot get a root hold. If you do find weeds, hand pull them before they have a chance to spread. If you decide to use chemical weed controls, it is very important to purchase a product especially formulated for use on specific Dichondra lawn weeds. Follow the label directions exactly, as Dichondra can be considered a broad-leafed weed and general broad-leafed weed chemicals would also kill it.
