Cool Season Annuals

While many a flower blooms during the warm winter months, cool season annuals are a bit different. As their name dictates, these flowers and plants relish in cool temperatures. They grow the best in spring or fall and are often somewhat frost tolerant. However, cool does not mean cold. While a tough family of flowers, these plants do best in brisk, yet not freezing climates. Many cool season annuals produce a wonderful fragrance and can add a quick dose of color to your garden, in the form of beautiful blues and whites flowers. If you truly want spring in your garden, make sure to plant a few cool season annuals with springtime blooms.
