Annuals provide more color and interest in gardens and landscapes for longer periods of time than any other garden plants. They are versatile, sturdy and a great value. Also known as bedding plants, annuals can be used to put color anywhere in your garden or landscape, in containers, window boxes, on decks and patios or to beautify steps, entryways and just about any place color is desired.
Here are our favorite annuals for sunny and shady locations:
are a great plant for hot sunny areas. The thick, glossy leaves and mounding habit make it one of the most well-adapted plants for the garden.
are a fast-growing trailing/spreading plant that thrives in full sun with regular feedings of fertilizer. Waves look best cascading down planters and window boxes.
Easily add long-lasting vibrant color to your garden this summer with spectacular flowering annual plants.
