QUESTION: What about diachondra repens? Is it native? Thank you,

ANSWER:

We assume this is in follow-up on your previous Mr. Smarty Plants question on Dichondra. We listed all the species of Dichondra native to North America (and therefore in our Native Plant Database). Dichondra repens is native to New Zealand and many areas in Australia so, nope, not native. Pictures and more information. We found no information on how it might grow in Hill County, Texas.
