I have Creeping Jenny growing in my yard. Will it grow if I take a piece of it and just lay in on the water without a pot?

If it's anchored in the soil as addy said, it will survive freezing winter weather. We've had it in little pots stuck in the waterfall and it doesn't usually survive winter. Any place it has grown into the soil it does survive.
So, do as addy says. Plant it in the soil, and guide it to grow into the water.

I agree it needs to start in soil and then drift out over the pond edge into the water. Maybe if you are lucky your koi will not rip it apart :smuggrin:

@j.w just posted that yesterday @MajorDan - not old at all!

I'll take the liberty of answering for her though - it's a type of sedum. Maybe she will know the exact name. I have a few that look similar: Red Carpet and Dragon's Blood both spread like this and have red leaves.
