Welcome to the annual plants and flowers review page. On this page, my readers and I report on the annual flowers that we grow and how they performed in our garden.
Please feel free to add your own reviews and your comments to our reviews. One of the ways we all learn as gardeners payis to share information about the plants we grow and love.
Please understand, that some of these plants are sent to me by nurseries for evaluation. But that I have no affiliation with any nursery or the promotion of any plant other than to share with my readers the honest results of how they perform in my garden.
I look at annual flowers in my garden as exclamation points that draw the eye to a specific part of the garden. Their colors are vibrant and season-long, allowing them to become focal points in any design. The challenge in designing with annuals is to fit them into the garden to complement the shrubs, perennials, and bulbous plants.
Or, you can simply submit to their charm and fill the entire garden.:-)
Please feel free to add your comments or submit your own evaluation of the annual plants and flowers in your garden.
