  • Silver Falls
    Truely one of the most amazing trailers you can grow!
    This dichondra is covered with small, rounded, silver leaves, that are soft to touch. Vigorous with a true cascading habit, it will gently sway in the wind. It's an excellent choice for mixed containers or hanging baskets. The photo shows just a single plant near the end of the season. This silver-stemmed plant also performs as a low-growing ground-cover, but requires well-drained soils.

    Very heat and drought-tolerant, ‘Silver Falls’ recovers quickly if wilted. Fertilize lightly.


  • Emerald Falls
    If you're looking for a "go-anywhere" sun-loving foliage plant, Emerald Falls is the variety you MUST try!
    Vigorous and easy to grow, this Dichondra boasts thick, super-soft deep green leaves arising profusely on very well-branched plants that need no pinching.
    Not quite as vigorous as Silver Falls.

  • Growing Guide
    Very heat and drought-tolerant, both silver Falls and Emerald Falls recover quickly even if wilted, and look fresh all season long.
