The Q&A Archives: Which seeds to plant in patio cracks

Question: I have a patio with some narrow cracks (enough for a seed to drop down). I woould like to plant a very short green plant (1/2 to no more than 1 inch high) in the cracks which would last year round in Houston Texas. What would you suggest?

Answer: I'm not aware of any plant that will grow only one inch high in a tiny, narrow space between cracks in a patio. Moss might grow if the site is shady. Otherwise, the concrete will get too hot and bake the roots of anything you plant there. Wish I could offer more assistance!
