Burnets Dichondra Lawn Seed 100g

Dichondra is a dark green, low-growing, broad leaf perennial. It is ideal as a ground cover, requires very little mowing generally requires less maintenance than a conventional lawn.

Dichondra is ideal for hard-to-mow areas such as slopes. It is a low-growing herb that forms a dense sod that can be kept green all year. However, a Dichondra Lawn will be damaged by children’s play and other traffic more than grasses.

Dichondra belongs to the Convolvulaceae (Morning Glory) family. It is a part of New Zealand's native flora, but it is also recorded as an indigenous species in many other countries. It was first discovered in Otago, where the New Zealand name “Mercury Bay Grass” originated. It produces white flowers which are purple-edged, which produce a two-celled ovary, each containing one seed.

During the winter when the weather is cool and the days are short, Dichondra tends to produce short petioles and small leaves. As days become longer and temperatures increase, leaves become larger and petioles longer. Dichondra grown in the shade will have larger leaves, longer petioles and more open growth than it will in full sun.
