Dichondra Lawn Grass Seed

 

Dichondra is a high quality, low growing warm season lawn grass.  Dichondra grows well in full sun to partial shade.  Dichondra will suffer damage from frost and should be applied in the warm climate areas.  Dichondra is suitable for low maintenance areas that are difficult to mow.  Dichondra is able to be mowed and maintained as a beautiful low growing lawn, pasture or erosion prone area.  Dichondra seed is a great choice for warm climate application areas.  Dichondra seed should be applied at 2 to 3 pounds per 1000 sq. ft. for best results.


Dichondra is a small genus of flowering plants in the morning glory family, Convolvulaceae. They are prostrate, perennial, herbaceous plants, with creeping stems which take root readily at the leaf nodes. The flowers are white, greenish or yellowish, 2-3 mm diameter.
The number of species is disputed, with some authors dividing the genus regionally into about ten separate species, while others accept only two species. Members of the genus are commonly known as ponysfoots and are native to tropical and warm temperate regions around the world.

The genus name is derived from the Greek words δίς (dis), meaning "two", and χόνδρος (chondros), meaning "grain". It refers to the fruits.

Dichondra seed will sprout in 7 - 14 days during warm (70 degrees or warmer) weather. The first leaves will be long and narrow and will not look like dichondra in the beginning. After the seed has all sprouted you can let the ground dry out in between waterings. It is a common mistake to water dichondra ground cover plants too often and too lightly after it is established. This can cause shallow rooting which just makes it more susceptible to disease. Each irrigation should add one inch of water to the soil. You can easily meaure this be putting several tuna fish cans out in the area you are watering and see how long it takes to fill them one inch. If it takes 30 minutes, then you know 30 minutes of watering will provide approximately 1 inch of water to the plant roots. Dichondra ground cover plants require water on a deep and infrequent basis and needs to slightly dry out between waterings.


Planting Directions

Dichondra can be grown from seed very easily.  The recommended seeding rate for coated Dichondra is 3 pounds of seed per 1,000 square feet.  The best time to sow Dichondra is from March through May; midsummer planting will germinate faster but will need careful, frequent waterings.  Planting early will produce sturdy root systems that can take mid-summer heat and some water stress.
