Annuals are plants whose natural life cycle (grow, bloom, set seed & die) is one season. They are the workhorse of the spring and summer garden providing continuous color from last frost to first frost. Versatile and vibrant annuals enhance every part of the garden. Beloved for generations, annuals brighten shady corners, create enticing patio spaces or create instant street appeal, as well as being perfect for planters, borders, window boxes, beds and hanging baskets.
