Flower Selection

Bison Nursery offers a wide variety of Annuals and Perennials.

Annuals are the bright burst of color that gets everyone excited in spring! Hanging baskets, containers, window boxes, and beds can all be filled with masses of annuals to brighten the landscape. We are always growing fresh and different annuals so be sure to stop in to check them out!

A true annual is a plant that completes its life cycle in one year. In a cold climate like ours, the term is also often applied to "tender" perennials which aren't sufficiently hardy to winter over in the garden.This means it goes from seed to seed and then dies off, during the course of one growing season.  As a general rule, annuals come on later than bulbs, perennials, and shrubs, and many varieties flower all summer long with little careThe whole mission of an annual is to produce seed and propagate. That’s why deadheading or removing spent flowers before the seed matures, produces more flowers and therefore more potential seed.

There are also plants considered to be hardy annuals. This just means that they are able to withstand a little frost without being killed off and will continue to bloom and set seed into the next year, but they will eventually expire.

Annuals can be further divided into cool season and warm season. Pansies will fade as the summer heats up. Zinnias won’t even get moving until the nights stay warm. Annual flowers give you the opportunity to have a totally different garden every year!

Perennials is a term that describes a plant that comes back every spring. There are perennial plants that can meet just about every need a landscape has. Perennials range from low growing plants to tall growing, from those that produce colorful flowers to those that provide visual pleasure with glowing seed heads. There's a simple reason our perennials plants are so popular — you plant them once and they bloom year after year. And because different perennials bloom at different times, you can create a dynamic garden that changes with the seasons. Our perennial plants come in a huge range of flower and foliage colors, heights and shapes, giving you an endless opportunity to express your creativity.
