As the spring season is only a couple weeks away, now is a great time to begin thinking about your different types of flowers you may want to introduce into your gardens and landscapes. Annual flowers typically last one growing season and therefore need to be replanted every year thereafter. However, annual flowers are among the most beautiful flowers and readily available. Their blooms tend to last a majority of the season.
Benefits of working with annuals
One of the best things about planting annual flowers is the freedom to change your design each and every year. From updating your overall landscaping design or simply wanting a different color or feel, planting annuals allows for a nearly endless opportunity. Gardening should be a fun and often relaxing opportunity, so be sure to experiment with different types of flowers as you create your landscape!
Fun annual options
Annuals are notoriously gorgeous flowers, so there are few places to truly go wrong when choosing them.
- Begonias: These flowers are very easy to plant and maintain. They thrive in most climates and love lots and lots of fertilizer. They’re good for new gardeners who want to start with a relatively hardy flower, but their beautiful petals attract many different levels of expertise.
- Bachelor’s Buttons: This little bloomer likes to reseed pretty freely and it is also relatively painless to work with. It can handle a little drought and promises to bring a little purple flourish to any garden or yard.
- Zinnias: These flowers are also relatively easy to grow. They do require ample sun and can benefit from some fertilizer. They bloom rather quickly and make excellent bursts of color.
