At the Enid A. Haupt Garden of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., ‘Silver Falls’ dichondra (Dichondra argentea ‘Silver Falls’, USDA Hardiness Zones 10-11) spills over a wall, creating a sheet of glimmering silver. This tender plant is a popular spiller in container designs, but is also effective draping from high places in a garden. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and will grow several feet in one season.
