Easy to grow, ornamental, edible, extremely vibrant and showy multiple shades... what more could you want in an annual? Nasturtiums are loved by many and are considered to also aid in deterring pests from gardens. These low maintenance plants are also a great solution in poor, dry locations and do best if just left to naturally grow.
Sunflowers can reliably turn any frown upside down. Bright and cheery annual blossoms that start to flower in mid summer bring a smile no matter what colour or size you choose to grow. Sunflowers can be planted in so many ways, even as a small flowering hedge that gives continuous colour right into the fall. Grow large types as cutflowers or dry for seed to feed the birds. Sunflowers are known to captivate many different types of beneficial insects, especially bees and monarch butterflies. Plant in full sun for best impact.
