Annual flowers and Plants - The perfect way to add a burst of color and life to your garden

What are Annual Flowers and Plants?

Annuals are plants that complete their entire life cycle, from germination to producing seeds, within one growing season. Once they have produced seeds, annual plants die and do not return the following year. These plants are typically sown from seeds or transplanted as seedlings each year.

Annuals are known for their bright colors, showy blooms, and ability to provide continuous color throughout the growing season. They are often used to fill gaps in perennial flower beds, as border plants, in container gardens, or as bedding plants to create seasonal displays in gardens and landscapes.
