Pennywort (Hydrocotyle spp.), also known as dollarweed, is a perennial weed prevalent in Florida. Pennywort reproduces via seeds, rhizomes, and occasionally by tubers. It produces erect, bright green, shiny leaves with scalloped margins. The petiole is located in the center of the leaf and forms an umbrella shape, which renders this weed easily distinguishable from dicondra, where the petiole is found at the margin
of the leaf base (see photograph to the left). Pennywort flowers occur in elongated spikes or rounded umbels at the top of long stalks. The plant produces greenish, rounded, and somewhat flattened fruit. Pennywort is found in moist to wet sites. Therefore, proper drainage and avoiding excessive irrigation help reduce pennywort populations.
