While both are equally beautiful in the garden, some home gardeners prefer annuals over perennials in the fall. Here's why.
Annuals are often chosen for their vibrant, showy blooms that can add a pop of seasonal color to a garden bed, border, or container. They bloom continuously throughout the growing season, providing a consistent display of flowers and foliage.
Annuals come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, offering gardeners more choices for creating a specific look or theme in their garden.
Because annuals need to be replanted each year, gardeners have the flexibility to change the design and layout of their garden each season. Many perennials start to die back in fall so annuals look bright, fresh, and new.
Many annuals are relatively easy to grow and maintain, making them a great choice for beginner gardeners or those with limited time and resources.
Annuals typically cost less making them an attractive option for gardeners on a budget.
Overall, annuals can be a great choice for gardeners who want to add seasonal color and variety to their garden without committing to a permanent planting scheme.
