Want to brighten up your landscape?
Do it with annuals! Annual flower beds are
fun and simple and can provide brilliant
color throughout the seasons. Nothing in the
landscape can provide as much color, for as
long a time, as can flowering annuals.
Pansy, viola, and petunia are a few of the
best for late fall planting.
Annual flowers look great in groupings near
the front door, along walkways, patios, or
beside pools. For the best effect, limit your
planting to 2 or 3 colors per planting bed. If
you'd like a more formal look, use one
variety of annual. Good choices include
geraniums, marigolds, and petunias. Plant
in groups of 10 or more for best effect. If you
like a vivid color scheme, try marigolds,
salvia, or snapdragons. For subtler tones,
select the blues and violets of pansies.
