Annuals are plants that grow for just one season. In the Midwest, these are typically the flowering plants that give your landscape and containers season-long “pops” of color. They are generally very easy to grow and require minimal care outside of yearly planting and regular watering.
Annuals also allow you to change the look of your garden from year to year. By filling in the areas around your shrubs, trees or perennials with different annuals every spring, your garden can get an annual mini-makeover. Plus, they’re perfect for containers.
