Silver Carpet Dymondia is a low-maintenance perennial known for its beautiful, very flat silvery foliage. Dymondia margaretae is a slow spreading, tough plant that forms a dense and lush groundcover, making it an excellent choice as a lawn-alternative. Coin-sized, yellow daisies appear in summer and bloom close to the foliage, looking like yellow confetti tossed on the ground.
Silver Carpet Dymondia is drought tolerant with deep succulent roots and known for its ability to thrive in dry conditions. It looks amazing planted between pavers and stepping stones because of its tight habit. The foliage is also extremely tough and can withstand some light foot traffic. The two-toned narrow leaves are a deep grayish-green on top and roll inward revealing the white cottony undersides for a stunning silvery appearance.
Silver Carpet will add a unique touch to any landscape with its attractive, low-profile silver foliage and yellow flowers. It can be used as a silver pathway planted between stepping stones, or as lawn substitute, or create a geometric design in the landscape. Dymondia is an exciting design element in a succulent garden planted among Aloes, Aeoniums, Agaves and other attractive succulents.
Dymondia looks best in coastal gardens. For hotter inland gardens, Dymondia grows best during the cooler temperatures of fall and spring and will slow its growth during the summer heat.
