Annuals are an important group of flowering plants widely used for garden. Annuals are very easy to grow, flower profusely in a short time in numerous shades of colour. Due to variation in the season of growth and flowering, several species grow well in summer and rains, while the majority of annuals are cultivated in the winter months in the plains.
Ageratum conyzoides (A mexicanum) (Compositae) Ageratum: Popular annual flowering plant for beds and pots. The height varies from 15-40 cm depending on the variety. It develops into well-shaped plant with dark green foliage and the dwarf varieties are compact and widely grown for edging and in a mixed border. Blue or its shades like azure blue, dark blue are normally selected for gardens; salmon, pink and white are not so popular. In the plains, seeds are sown from September to November and the plants flower in 2-3 months after sowing. Pinching of taller varieties is done to make the plants bushy. Removal of faded flowers promoted flowering for a longer period.
Adthaea Rosea (Malvaceae) Hollyhock: It is a popular flowering plant throughout the world and commonly known as hollyhock. In tropical climate, hollyhock is treated as an annual, while in the hills it is grown as a perennial. The height of the plant varies from 1.0 to 2.5 m. large flowers 8-12 cm across appear on long erect stem at the axils of the leaves. It is mainly used at the back of the mixed border or along a wall. Plants of shorter height also make good pot plants. The flowers open successively from below towards the tip of the spike and continues to bloom for a long time till the temperature rises high, when almost all other annuals dry up. A wide range of flower colour is recorded in hollyhock eg. White, cream, yellow, rose, lilac, purple, scarlet and crimson. The flowers may be single, double and semi-double. The plants grow better when directly sown in site and extra seedlings are removed to maintain a distance of 50-60 cm. Seeds should be sown in September-October to get bloom during January to April.
