Annuals Versus Perennials

Annuals vs Perennials

How are annuals and perennials different? Which type of flower would be best to plant at your home? Kay gives you some great spring gardening tips below!


  1. Their life cycle is one growing season.  Annuals have to be replanted every spring.
  2. Most varieties are known to be continuous blooming throughout the season.
  3. Require fertilizer and most varieties perform better when trimmed and deadheaded.


  1. Plants that live more than two years.  Perennials grow and bloom over the spring and summer and die back every fall – but reappear the next spring.
  2. Season in bloom is usually not as long-lasting.
  3. Require fertilizer and division of roots every two to three years.

Now that you know the difference between each type of flower, you’re ready to get those hands dirty and fill those flower beds.
