Annuals are plants that complete their life cycle in less than one year. The most popular annuls are plants like Petunias and Geraniums. These are planted in the spring and flower profusely all summer long and die when the frosts arrive in the fall. There are other annuals like Pansies which are planted in the fall and bloom through the winter months. Pansies last into the late spring when the weather warms up and they die as a result of the heat.


Bulbs are plants that grow from a root. The roots store food in the form of starches. The plants grow from the bulbous roots to produce leaves and flowers. Many spring-flowering plants such as daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, and so on, are bulb plants. If you want to grow them, they are best planted in the fall, after the soil is fairly cool. There are also many summer flowering plants that grow from bulbs like Begonias, Gladiolus, and Lilies.


Perennials are plants that can live for many years in your garden. Perennials continue growing, blooming, and seeding for a number of years. The root system or bulb, and sometimes the stem and foliage, last through the winter. Some of the most popular perennials include plants like Echinacea, Hostas, and Lavender. There are literally thousands of perennials. You can find a perennial for almost any situation.
