Drop and Grow

Drop and Grow is a special collection of no-fuss plants that are so tough, you don't even need to dig a hole to plant them! We grow them in special soil -- all you need to do is drop them on loose ground, add mulch, and water well. They'll take off and create a carpet of color in no time. We love Drop and Grow -- and are sure you will, too! Drop and Grow Sedum Tiles are particularly fun; these mats offer a colorful combination of hardy, low-water sedum varieties. You can cut them into any shape you want, making them perfect for any DIY project. Sedum Tiles are perfect for adding easy-care color around sunny decks and patios, between flagstones in pathways, or in the front of garden beds and borders. Look below for some of the top varieties in our Drop and Grow collection.
