February 1, 2011 at 4:43 pm Leave a comment

Annual: a plant that completes it’s full growing cycle in one season. Some perennial plants in one zone are considered annual in cooler climates. Annual plants will produce seeds for propgation within it’s cycle. Deadheading flowers before seeds mature will produce more flowers on the plant. Eg. Geranium (Pelargonium), Salvia, Petunia, Marigolds.

Annuals are a great way to add colour through out the whole season. They are also great space fillers in a newly established garden. Annuals can fill the spaces while the perennial plants slowly fill out.
