Where is our Grass?

Spring to Fall

The weather in Florida is so extreme, drought, flood, drought, etc. that whole species of plants disappear from year to year. I remember when there was no Riccardia – the starry flower ground cover (so I am told) – everywhere now.
My Association grass died last Spring, a few weeds began and now they provide total cover (no grass). I do not mind. The weeds are frogfruit, sorrel, day flower, riccardia, little yellow flowers, dollar weed (oops too much rain). I hope they continue to fill our place.

  1. More ground covers

  2. Hi Elaine,

    None of the species in your reference are acceptable.

    I would suggest the following:

    1) Schinus terebinthifolius.
    2) Lygodium Microphyllum
    3) Bischofia Javanica
    4) Thespesia Populnea
    5) Albizia Lebbeck
    6) Antiperistalzia Repugnante
