Dichondra argentea 'Silver Falls'


Dichondra 'Silver Falls' is a tender perennial with small, shimmering, silver foliage that trails up to 4 feet.

Dichondra 'Silver Falls' is a show-stopper for offering both elegance and drama with its spectacular foliage and trailing form. The foliage steals the show in soft masses of small, fan-shaped, shimmering silver leaves that gently cascade on 2-4 foot stems. It also has small yellow-green to white flowers. Use as the spill in hanging baskets or trailing over retaining walls. Also works well as a ground cover that quickly forms dense mats to choke out weeds. This is a tender plant that can be treated as an annual or brought indoors as a house plant in winter.
