Annuals and perennials spice the landscape with their beautiful flowers and foliage. Beds of color provide brilliant accents against backgrounds of permanent plantings, soften artificial lines, and provide graceful transitions from one outdoor area to another. Flowers can be used to accent a view, frame a door, or just draw attention.

Annual plants are practical because they are versatile, sturdy, and inexpensive. They quickly yield color throughout the season.

Perennial plants return year after year. They fit into many landscapes and can be used as borders, accents, or strong focal points. The foliage of many perennials is attractive during nonflowering seasons as well.
