Annual Plants
bar graphic

Technically, an annual is a plant that completes its life cycle from germination to seedling to death in one year. Here at Floridata, and in most horticultural circles, an annual is any plant that blooms its first year from seed, whether or not it is capable of surviving another year. Annuals are usually selected for their color and planted in containers, beds or formal borders.
