What Are Annual Plants & What Is Their Purpose

Annual plants or flowers are species that stay alive for one growing season and then die. The purpose of annuals is to bring diversity and color to your landscaping beds, containers, and boxes for a short amount of time before planting new ones.

In central Iowa, we offer both cool season and warm season annuals that allow your landscaping beds to look fresh all year long. 


Details About Cool Season Annuals

Cool season annuals are a great option to plant in March or April, before the warm weather sets in. These flowers thrive in low, nighttime temperatures, need moisture, and can stick around until daytime temperatures start reaching 80°F or higher.

If you are looking to add seasonal color to your property well before spring and summer, these beautiful blooms are perfect for you:

  • Pansies
  • Snapdragons
  • Sweet Alyssum
  • California Poppy
  • Larkspur
  • Violas

When Warm-Season Annuals Need to Be Planted & Varieties That Are Popular

Warm season annuals need to be planted after the danger of frost has passed for the season. For properties in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, and other nearby areas in central Iowa, this is typically around mid-May.

Popular varieties of warm-season annuals include:

  • Impatiens 
  • Marigolds
  • Petunias
