Dichondra argentea Silverfalls ponyfoot question

Are there more than one variety of Silverfalls ponyfoot out there? I just bought several flats and the leaves were twice the size and much more green than others I've found. Not GREEEN green, but grey green. The Silverfalls I see online in drifts and in beds are much smaller leaved and much more silver. Is this a result maybe of growing conditions in the greenhouses, or are there variations between different varieties of Silverfalls? I couldn't find any others online so baffled by this. Any growers of this out there that might have me an answer? Big thanx!!

    I don't believe that is 'Sliver Falls' at all! As the name indicates, Silver Falls is silver - an icy gray color that is very distinctive. Yours is far too green and I would suspect that is just Dichondra repens and possibly the cultivar 'Emerald Falls'.

    Oh NO......I was afraid of that! Emerald falls huh....well I just bought 10 flats of this I wanted for a groundcover. I ordered it without seeing it. It was marked Silverfalls. Guess I better investigate that some. I bought from a wholesale nursery one of the best. And they said they weren't sue why there would be a difference unless it was growing conditions.......:(


    I think the repens is the deep true green flat growing dichondra....but I'm really confused now.
