Replacing deco-drain


I have removed the deco-drain from my patio and I need to repair the 4x2 slot it created. The plastic bottom is still in and cannot be removed. What is the best material to use that will look like the rest of the concrete?

Why was the drain removed? The reason I'm asking is if someone went to the trouble to install one there had to be a reason for it being there.

There will be no matching it exactly, I'd mist down the hole and fill it with premixed concrete. Make sure to keep going over it to forse the stones down into the mix.
