Thanks for the research on this plant. I was considering putting in groundcover, but feeding the gophers and moles is on my "NO WAY" list. While I would enjoy the beauty and durability, I would definitely curse the underground creatures!

Thanks, I plan to mention your suggestions for Dymondia margaretae in an ground cover article for Mariposa's UC Master Gardeners. I will give you credits for your research.

How long does dymondia stay attractive? I was researching ruschia nana (carpet of stars) for a lawn alternative. It looks great for the first 3-4 years and then can turn woody and ugly. Will dymondia continue to look great as long as it’s well taken care of or will it start looking old and dead after a few years? I want to invest in a groundcover that lasts for many years.  
Can I cover dymondia with something like landscape fabric during the 100+ degree days in Southern California or will it die back from pure heat under a dark fabric?  
Thank you for compiling all the information!

Hi, how long does it take to grow in an area roughly 20x20. As far as the gophers go are you able to use just regular gopher repellent or put like a wire mesh down and then plant on top of that to help. I have to German Shepherd dogs that like to run around. How long will this product last I live in California Northern area. Thank you for your help
