Dichondra repens (Kidney Weed) is a perennial ground cover forming a lush carpet of small, bright green, kidney-shaped leaves. Its creeping stems root wherever the nodes touch the ground. Inconspicuous flowers produce seeds that may remain in the soil for many years before sprouting.

Ground-hugging, Dichondra repens is maintenance free, and useful for spots where normal grasses may not do as well. Handsome between pavers, it can tolerate light foot traffic. A great lawn alternative, its chief advantage over grass is that it doesn't need mowing. It can also be used in rockeries.
