Annuals are plants that complete their life cycle in one year OR are perennials in warmer climates that we grow for one season that will not survive our Wisconsin winters. Annual flowers are
typically grown and planted in mass or as accents for their profuse, abundant, and vibrantly colored blooms.
A perennial is a plant that has a life cycle of 2 or more years. In our area, these plants die back to the ground in the fall, go dormant through winter, and regrow the following spring
from stored energy in the roots. Perennials are less labor intensive than planting annual flowers every year and generally require less watering. However, perennials typically flower in a
more limited season.
Shrubs are low growing woody plants that can either be deciduous or evergreen. Shrubs are the easiest plant group to maintain needing yearly pruning (if necessary) and fertilizing after
establishment. They typically have a long lifespan of 10-15 years or more in most residential landscapes. They are typically grown for aesthetic flower, fruit, fall color, or other
