Dichondra repens, commonly known as Kidney Weed or Dichondra Lawn, is a lush and low-growing perennial plant native to Australia and New Zealand. With its vibrant green foliage and trailing habit, it forms a dense carpet of small, rounded leaves, creating an attractive ground cover. It spreads vigorously, making it an excellent choice for a uniform and weed-suppressing lawn alternative. Tolerates full sun and up to 80% shade, it prefers well-draining soil and requires minimal watering once established. This versatile plant adds beauty and texture to gardens, courtyards, landscapes and pots & planters providing a soft and inviting carpet of green. Grows approx 10cm H x 1m W.
