Annuals are plants that are grown from seed, flower and die in the same year.
The definition of annuals is a bit confusing: some plants that are actually perennials (plants that live on from year to year) are used as annuals in climates where they cannot survive year-round, either because of extreme cold or extreme heat.
Hardy annuals can survive cold temperatures and some light frost, while tender annuals cannot tolerate cold temperatures and should be planted only after there is no more danger of frost.
