Dichondra, Ponysfoot

Carolina Ponyfoot (Dichondra carolinensis) and Oakwoods ponyfoot (Dichondra recurvata) are low-growing, creeping perennial weeds

Carolina Ponyfoot (Dichondra carolinensis) and Oakwoods ponyfoot (Dichondra recurvata) are low-growing, creeping perennial weeds that can quickly spread under the right conditions. The plants can produce new roots at each leaf node; meaning as they creep along the soil surface they can continue rooting and creating new plant clusters. The smooth green leaves resemble a kidney in shape, although it’s also called “pony’s foot” or “ponyfoot” based on the shape. In spring, they produce a tiny, 5 petaled flower. These plants are native to Texas and can be found throughout the southeastern U.S.
