Multiple UsesI agree 100% with Honeybee. This is excellent plant to have; it spills down from large container covering completely everything. You can use cheap plastic container on your patio and none of your guests would know about it. Also I’m using it as ground cover between my vegetables, I planted one of them between my tomato plants, they crawled everywhere completely covering the ground protecting from weeds and keeping the moisture in the ground. You can cut back your watering in half and in addition to that you can enjoy your garden barefooted. Oh, it is very pleasant walking bare foot and picking tomatoes in the summer morning, feeling the cold ground and the little leaves tickle between your toesies. Very, very nice.

Dichondra,Silver FallsI have tucked this little plant into my container planters for two years now. It is a fantastic trailing plant that provides a soft gray/green contrast foliage to the plants above it. It stays low and full. Not invasive, but will root where it hits the dirt. I just clip and add to another pot. So sorry that it is an annual, wish I could have it year round.
