IMG_8545Bedding Plants are mostly comprised of annuals though some are actually temperennials (perennials in temperate climates).

Annuals are plants that grow, bloom, flower and die in one season. They are used to give gardens all-season color and dramatic ‘pop’.

Annuals come in many shapes, sizes and sun tolerances. Our availability varies throughout the season but we strive to carry a wide and unusual assortment for every gardener’s needs.
