Annuals

Annuals are plants that complete their life cycle in one growing season and require replanting every year. One seed life cycle could last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the plant. Their life span lasts depending on the geographical location; however, the most common way to split up annuals is by winter and summer annuals. 

Our gardening experts are available to discuss our annuals selection with you and answer any questions you may have! Below you will find a few annuals that we offer in our shop! Check out our Popular Plants FAQ to find out more about our most popular annual plants.

Summer Annuals

Summer annuals germinate in spring or early summer and complete their life cycle by the fall. Summer annuals are usually very colorful, allowing you to brighten up your garden during the summer months. Some popular summer annuals include petunias and impatiens. Summer annuals thrive when exposed to partial or full sun.

Winter Annuals

Winter annuals will germinate during the fall and early winter months, ending their life cycle in the spring. Winter annuals are great to keep your garden blooming during the colder months, allowing you to change it up with different plants in the summer months. Tennessee’s mild winter temperatures make it possible for many winter annuals to survive during the winter. Some popular winter annual plants include violas, flowering kale, and pansies.

Low Maintenance Annuals

Annual flowers are filled with tons of color and bloom non-stop during their growing season. You don’t have to be an experienced gardener to bring this color into your garden. There are plenty of low-maintenance annual options for you to choose from, such as coleus, pansies, dahlia, and angelonia. Even though these plants may not have a year-long life cycle, they’re still easy to care for, and some can even withstand more extreme temperatures or drought conditions.
