Annual flowers in our area of Illinois love the warm weather!

The best time of year to plant annuals is when the weather is consistently warmer.

The amount of direct sunlight will determine what types of annual flowers will grow best on your property.

A property with partial shade (about 4 hours of sunlight per day)

When we consider annual flowers, we look at the whole property and see just how much sunlight certain areas are receiving. Part shade flowers are considered flowers that are exposed to direct or partial sun for about half the day.

These types of flowers include:

  • Lobelia– The plant creates a dramatic wave of purple and will grow in most areas but prefers some shade.
  • Nicotiana– Features star-shaped flowers in white and shades of pink.
  • Red salvia– This plant presents striking stalks of red flowers in shady areas.

Properties that get full sun can lead to an explosion of summer color!

Summer is time for fun in the sun, and we have a few top choices for properties with areas of full sun most of the day, including:

  • Amaranthus– This large, showy annual features plumes of color. Red is a very popular variety.
  • Celosia– Also known as cockscomb, this unique bloom is spiky and vibrant, available in yellow, orange, purple, red, and pink.
  • Vinca– Vinca is a trailing plant that sports bright purple flowers and looks great in hanging arrangements and over walls.
