Annuals and Perennials
Having a beautiful landscape is a lot about choosing the right blend of plants, trees and shrubs. Some flowering plants are seasonal and will bloom only at certain times of the year and then shed most of their leaves within that year. These types of plants are called annuals and they complete their life cycle in one year. In colder climates, some perennials may also be grown as annuals.
In order that a perennial be worth growing as a good annual, it will have to bloom profusely within the first years of its growth. Some examples of these types of plants are alyssum, lantana and pansies.
More about Annual Garden Plants
Some plants are hardy perennials and they don’t really get affected by a little frost and won’t perish in the cold. They will also end up setting seed in the next year as well. There are warm season annuals and cool season annuals too. Very simply, these plants give you a good opportunity to create a very different look in your landscaping each year. We at RC Sons Garden Center are a specialized company that carries a vast variety of vibrant and healthy annuals.
We cater to customers across Bethlehem, Allentown, Phillipsburg, Fullerton and Northampton and have a large number of customers in and around Stroudsburg, The Poconos, Somerville, East Stroudsburg and Hackettstown as well. We have stunning spring blooms as well as cool weather pansies and a range of late summer annuals that are pretty much resistant to the scorching heat of the sun.
Understanding What Perennials Are
Perennials are a very important part of any successful landscaping project. These come in various colors & sizes and bloom in different seasons. Perennial plants will naturally grow and bloom right through the spring and summer months; once autumn sets in, they die and will get revived only the following spring.
The interesting thing about perennials is that they grow stronger and bloom better with each passing year. Heuchera, astilbe, ornamental grasses and ferns, echinacea, peony, iris and daylily and hosta are all very popular perennial flowering plants.
