Expect More with Wayside's Annual Plants

Annual plants are an easy way to bring a bounty of living beauty to your landscape. From spring until fall gardeners of all levels of experience can enjoy the thrilling foliage and gorgeous blooms of Wayside's annuals. Unlike perennials which bloom for a season and then return the next year, annuals have a single year to shine and so they put all of their energy into putting on the most extraordinary show possible.

The ideal annual mix includes three key elements: a thriller, spiller, and filler. They each do as their names imply. The spiller is typically a trailing plant such as petunias which spill out over the sides of the containers for a dramatic waterfall-like effect. The filler is usually a low-growing variety which uses its dense blooms and foliage to create a rich carpet of color, giving the arrangement a fuller, more seamless appearance. Finally, the thriller is the centerpiece of the arrangement and sports the most eye-catching blooms or foliage which draw you in to fully admire the brilliance of the dynamic and multi-layered display. Combinations such as the ever popular 'Americana' provides an excellent example of the thriller-spiller-filler principle with its use of Lobelia, Verbena, and Petunias. While this method is the most tried and true, the number of combinations is as boundless as one's own imagination.
