Annuals by definition are plants whose life cycle lasts only one year. The advantage with annuals is the ability to create a fresh garden design each year. Annuals are incredibly diverse, adaptable, and versatile. They come in many different colors, sizes, forms, and textures. Annuals can be used to attract wildlife such as butterflies and hummingbirds, add vibrant color to garden borders, supply cut flowers, provide instant curb appeal, or even fill in empty spaces where bulbs have died back. Since annuals can be grown in containers, they are perfect for small spaces, such as patios, and for people who do not have enough time to maintain an entire garden. Annual flowers require maintenance, such as weeding, fertilizing, and deadheading to keep them actively blooming. Whether you need help with design, installation, or maintenance of annual flowers, give Barnes, Inc. a call to help create a beautiful landscape.
Perennial plants play an essential role in landscape design. They are herbaceous plants that, once planted, return year after year. Perennials also provide a wide array of color, structure, texture, and flower types that are unavailable in annual flowers. Unfortunately, perennials’ bloom season is fairly short compared to annual flowers. Some perennials will bloom throughout spring, summer, and fall, but most bloom once during the growing season. However, with the right combination of perennials blooming at different times, your garden can have beautiful color all season long. Perennials are also great as foliage plants. When they are done blooming, their leaves can add a nice texture to any garden. Perennial grasses can offer year-round interest, especially during the winter months as frost and snow can create a glistening effect. Annuals can be combined with perennials to produce a constant colorful display. Maintaining your perennial plants requires knowing when to prune, pinch, deadhead, divide, or relocate them.
