Annuals

Plants and flowers classified as annuals are those which complete their life cycle within one year. Most are native to warmer, tropical regions and do not tolerate Ontario’s cold fall and winter temperatures. A few hardy annuals (like Pansies) can tolerate light frost.

Annual flowers are appreciated for their variety, colours and growing habits – many blooming continuously from the moment they’re planted until first frost.

Annuals are ideally suited for the garden border – coming into bloom after the spring perennials complete their explosion of colour, filling bare areas of the garden where colour and interest is desired and for all types of container gardening, including pots, planters and window boxes.

Cozyn’s Garden Gallery partners with Ontario’s best growers to ensure you have the best quality and best selection of annuals available. If you’re looking for what’s hot, what’s new and plants for every type of of soil, light and growing conditions, visit Cozyn’s Garden Gallery
