It grows very close to the ground, (usually not over 2 inches tall) and is a warm season ground cover.

Dichondra has broad, almost circular leaves (looks similar to clover) and when mown low establishes a thick dense carpet look. Dichondra is now used in many ground cover situations where normal grasses may not do

ground cover plants for shade
Many perennial gardeners are familiar with spike speedwell, the tall growing Veronicas, but not so familiar with the creeping ground cover Veronicas. If you are one of these people, you have been missing out on one of the lowest growing ground covers available. Creeping blue speedwell (veronica repens) only grows to 2" tall and is adorned with a soft, light blue flower in masses. This ground cover will spread and flourish in your flower bed or work perfectly between stepping stones or in a rock garden. Veronicas are alpine plants and they don't really like being used as lawn alternatives. But tuck them somewhere where their roots are kept cool, like between pavers or in rock gardens or troughs, and they'll deliver for you. Veronicas are deciduous, meaning they'll drop their leaves in the fall. You'll need to clean out the fallen leaves so the new growth in spring isn't smothered.
