Choosing Annual and Perennial Flowers

verbena

Perennials often are used to solve troublesome spots in the landscape. Some of these areas might be wet, dry or shady, or possess infertile soil. Annuals are used for their continuous flower color throughout most of the growing season. Here are some suggestions for planting flowers in specific locations in and around the landscape. These include low-growing and tall plants, and plants for shade and full-sun/dry locations, massing, naturalizing and fragrance. Perennial verbena photo by Patrick Standish
