Dichondra repens or Silver falls?

I am going to pave my very hot backyard with a silver travertine paver. To soften the look of the pavers, I want to plant strips of dichondra through them. Which of the two dichondras is better suited to a hot backyard please?

Hi Peter,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Dichondra repens are shade tolerant and require more frequent watering than silver falls. If the backyard exposes in full sun and get very hot in summer, silver fall is more suitable. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
