dichondra silver falls

I managed to find some nice big pots of Dichondra "silver falls".  I turned two of these:

Into eight of these:

I really like how they look - the silver is a great contrast to all of that dark green foliage and the wine-red of the autumn hydrangeas.  With luck by mid-summer they'll have grown long and thick over the edge of the bed.  I'm also thinking of planting some flowers in the beds until the hydrangeas grow up a bit - I'm thinking violas or maybe forget-me-nots.  What do you think?

They are gorgeous! And a perfect accent. Maybe some pansies for nice winter color? ;)
