Annuals are the show-stoppers of the plant world. They are seasonal plants that offer drama and bright color to gardens and containers. Although their life cycle only lasts one season, they have an extended blooming period and provide bold personality and interest to any space. Plant them in a flower bed, along borders, in a hanging basket or container to brighten up any space!
