Plants classed as annuals are those which complete their life cycle within one year, or are not winter hardy. Annuals are some of our most useful garden flowers. With a rainbow of available color choices, an almost endless supply of forms and sizes, and the ability to bloom the entire growing season, annuals have a place in any garden. Just a few varieties are shown below.
