Versatile – Varied – Vivacious
Once spring hits, gardeners want instant gratification. Rohsler’s Grown annuals pack the powerful punch everyone wants.
From that first flat of winsome Pansies or Violas to the last flower on Dianthus, annuals have it all. There is an annual that is tailor-made for every situation (sun/shade, moist/dry). Those intrepid cold-tolerant annuals such as Snapdragons and African Daisies provide splashes of color from early spring through mid-autumn.
Rohsler’s Grown annuals and the varieties Rohsler’s brings in from other top-notch growers enliven garden spaces including borders, mixed plantings, hanging baskets, and container gardens.
Clients who require large quantities of annuals are invited to contact Rohsler’s to place a special order.
Master Gardener Gail Moll, who has been Rohsler’s “Annual Maven” for the last 11 years, gets a real kick out of these versatile plants.
“I enjoy gardening at my own home, and I always plant annuals,” Gail adds. “I’m excited because there are always new varieties.” This year, Gail says she is looking forward to working with the latest Calibrachoas. (That would be mini-Petunias/Million Bells to most of us!)

Yes, some annuals require deadheading (removal of spent blossoms) so they will continue to bloom all season. Others troopers like Begonias and Impatiens require less care.
Remember that the name “annuals” refers to the plant’s life cycle. Most annuals will last just for the year, or until they set seed. Deadheading prolongs the amount of time these plants continue to produce flowers. Removing past flowers on annuals like Marigolds and Seed Petunias will enhance the number of blooms and prolong the bloom time immensely.
Bonus: Many annuals, like Sweet Alyssum and Cleome, will re-seed themselves in your garden.
