Annual flowers are plants with a life cycle of one year, that means if you are planting annuals in your flower beds, they will need to be planted again every spring. One of the benefits of annual flowers are they tend to be more vibrant in color and last all season long with proper care. At Grasshopper Gardens we offer a wide variety right from our nursey which include:

  • Petunias
  • Begonias
  • New Guinea Impatiens

Perennial flowers are plants that come back every spring. While the top portion of a perennial dies back in winter, new growth appears the following spring from the same root system. The great part about perennials is that they tend to be lower maintenance if properly planted, with the right amount of sun, water and nutrients. Blooms last anywhere between 4-6 weeks for blooming perennials. These make a great supplement to annual plants and flowerbeds.
