This product is not eligible for a Water Provider discount.




Looking to fill just a few empty spots in your garden? This six pack of adaptable low-water perennials works perfectly to help fill out your existing garden beds. These plants thrive in full sun and part shade exposure so they can tuck in your sun or part shade beds! You’ll get a couple of grasses for height and movement, plus a couple of stunning red Columbine and blue Plumbago that will easily add splashes of colors to any existing garden bed.

At times, we may have to substitute specific plants but we will always do our best to maintain the original color and feel of the plants listed below.

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 6 to 51 starter plants in 4-inch pots. Upon pick up, plants will be small relative to their mature size and they may not be in full bloom.
  • Occasionally things don't grow as planned. At times, we may have to substitute specific plants but we will always do our best to maintain the color and feel of this garden.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the first and second growing seasons, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size. On average, allow two to three years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • Most gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one, two, or four 2 ft x 1 ft trays, (pictured left). For more information on the size of gardens, visit our FAQs Page.

Hardy and Thriving

I have been changing my front lawn to xeriscape over the last 6 years and have been buying GIAB since the beginning. These are the only plants that ever survive. My garden is gorgeous and I can't say enough about these gardens.
