Dichondra repens – Kidney Weed

A creeping plant that spreads widely from underground stolons, making it a good ground cover. It is also used as a soft lawn alternative which doesn’t need mowing, though it won’t stand up to hard traffic. It grows best in moist lightly shaded areas, preferring clay type soils, but will grow in sunny spots provided it gets some water in dry times. Naturally grows in all areas of Australia. It has insignificant green-yellow flowers at all times of the year.
