Bright and easy, for a whole season of colour
Annuals are plants that germinate from seed, grow to maturity, flower, set seed and then die, all in one growing season. They are generally low maintenance and give a long display of abundant flowers. Deadheading extends the flowering season, and in autumn, seed may be saved for next year. For best results in a flower border, mix both annuals and perennials together. In colder climates, some early-maturing and tender perennials may be grown as annuals, being discarded as they die back.
