A List of Annual Flowers Divided by Color

A list of annual flowers to brighten your beds or container gardens. Perennials versus annuals. Plants and seeds available for every color including black.

A small front yard devoted, almost exclusively, to annuals.

Gardening with annuals is fun because you can achieve quick results. Annual flower seeds are readily available for all of the plants on this list. If you enjoy watching a seed sprout and grow into an annual bedding plant, then start your plants from seed.

If you are impatient, like me, you can plant annuals that are already blooming by beginning with nursery plants. You can also order annual flowers online right here.

Either way, your planting will mature rapidly. Most annual flower plants are genetically programmed to mature in a few weeks.

Perennials versus Annuals

See how the sun loving annuals planted in front of the hedge and at the mailbox brighten this Central Florida front yard landscape design.

Perennials are investment plants.

They're the retirement plan of the plant world.

You have to be patient and willing to wait for a period of years to receive the benefits they offer.

Perennial border plants are long-lasting, beautiful landscape accents and, in the long run, they are cheaper than annuals which makes them the better investment.

They are also the plants of choice for lazy gardeners.

You plant them once and they come back year after year on their own.

So why plant annuals ?

Instant gratification.

Annual plants are the fast food of the plant world. And on a plant-by-plant basis, they are cheaper than perennials. Even if the budget is tight this year, you can still get your plant fix.

You can quickly surround yourself with color by growing annual flowers in the spring.

Here's a list of annual flowers to help you chase away the winter blues.
