What Is an Annual?

The term annual is applied to garden flowers that complete their life cycle in the span of one growing season. They come up in the spring, grow, flower, set seed and then die after the frosts in the fall.   We grow  hundreds of annuals which we've tested in our greenhouses and in our gardens and have found them to do very well  in our area. Some of the more popular annuals that we carry are:    

  • Ageratum Lobelia
    Begonia Marigold
    Celosia Pansy
    Coleus Petunia
    Dahlia Portulaca
    Dianthus Salvia
    Geranium Snapdragons
    Gerbera Daisy Vinca Periwinkle
    Impatiens

    Violas         

Along with these many annuals, you will be able to find hundreds of folaige, vining and flowering plants,  which are wonderful to use in your container gardens. Many of these items are from the Proven Winners line.

What is a perennial?

Perennial plants are non-woody plants which grow and live for more than a single year. Perennials usually produce one or more flower crop each year, depending on the variety. Each blooming period may last anywhere from a week to a month... or longer.
 
We carry a large selection of 4" perennials, as well as many popular gallon perennials.  Along with the perennials that we grow, we also offer the Stepables line. Stepables are perennials that are ideal for planting in walkways or crevices.
