Dymondia margaretae (Silver Carpet) Details

Commonly known as Silver Carpet, this is a low growing, groundcover plant. It produces narrow leaves which are grey-green and about 30 mm long. When the white undersides of the leaves are exposed during dry periods they give a variegated appearance. Small and yellow, daisy like flowers are borne during summer and bring another element of interest to this plant. This herbaceous perennial typically grows to just 6 cm tall and 30 cm wide, performing best when planted in full sun to partial shade on a well-drained site. It is drought tolerant due to having a deep root system and it will tolerate moderate frost and coastal environments. Silver Carpet can be used as a lawn replacement, particularly in dry areas, and is often used a filler between pavers or stepping stones. It is also commonly used as a groundcover, maintained in a container, used in cottage gardens, or added to Mediterranean themed gardens.
