Opposite of perennials, annual plants and flowers will bloom and die all within the same year. Annual flowers, like marigold and begonias, will add extraordinary beauty to your garden but they will only stick around for one growing season.
For experimental gardeners, this can be an opportunity to experiment with different types of annuals each season. Add them to your porch for some color and texture, or your garden to add some variety and dimension. If a particular annual flower piques your interest, you will have to replace them next season, however, if another variety didn’t work out as well as you’d hoped then you have the ability to replace with a different type of flower next go around.
Below are examples of beautiful annual flowers gardeners can expect to bloom in each of the four seasons.
