Torian and Edwardian periods thou sands of annuals were planted in large beautifully symmetrical masses called beds

Gardens are much smaller today. And annuals are no longer confined to planting beds. In fact, this diverse group of plants can be used in many unique ways—as temporary ground covers and spectacular hanging baskets, in containers as greenhouse plants or in tubs for decks and patios.

By definition, an annual is a flower that completes its life cycle—germinates, flowers, sets seed and dies—in a single growing season. Annuals may be grown from seed started indoors in late winter or planted directly in the ground. Or purchase bedding plants in flats at most nurseries and garden centers.
