Planting Flowers - Annuals or Perennials?

It was fun shopping for flowers to plant over the weekend. I ended up with both annuals and perennials. It seems the annuals had more color and the perennials would last year after year and be easier to manage.  I could not resist the Senetti flowers. The purple and white colors just really popped out from the rest of the flowers. 
The flower boxes ended up with Red Flame Phlox which are not yet in bloom. I really was inspired by the flowers I saw in the city last week that I had to plant a few around the house to enjoy them and brighten things up.

Do you prefer annuals or perennials?


  1. I always go for perennials, but may just try some annuals this year. Life is too short to stick with just one!

  2. Wonderful. The purple and white colored ones are the best (appealing)
