Q:

Do annual flowers come back every year?

A:

Annual flowers, also known as annuals, only live for one season and do not come back the next year. Perennials are flowers that live for more than one season, returning in the years after they're planted.

Although annuals only survive for one growing season, they tend to bloom longer than perennials. Popular annuals include impatiens, marigolds, angel's trumpets and begonias. Because they only live for one season, annuals are popular for window planters, hanging plants and potted plants. There is also a third type of flower, called the biennial, which grows for two seasons. This type of flower does not bloom until its second growing season.

    What are deer-resistant annual flowers?

    Bachelor buttons, petunias, salvia, snapdragons, marigolds and morning glories are all deer-resistant annuals.

  • Q:

    How are annual rings formed?

    A:

    In climates where the year includes cold and warm or wet and dry seasons, the cells in annual rings vary in color due to the fact that the tree grows faster in one season than in the other. In most instances, the tree adds one light-colored ring during the time it grows fastest and a dark ring as growth slows.
