    What do Dichondra seeds look like in a Dichondra Repens Lawn. I would like to harvest the seeds myself and plant them to start a new Seed bed. An image of the Seed pods or flowers in bloom would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Well I had no idea what a Dichondra was but it says they are easily grown from the leaf nodes So maybe cuttings are your best bet ! Similar to how we grow St Augustine grass,,,Just take a runner and bury the end part and keep watered !

    Thank you for your response. Our Dichondra seems to be very self renewing this year from seed pod dispersals. The local long eared mowing Rabbits keep it short & trim..
