Annuals are great to use in between your perennials to fill in any bare spaces.
Technically, an annual is any plant that completes its life cycle in one growing season. So these plants grow, flower, and go to seed in one season only. Some annuals will provide lots of seedlings the following year such as portulaca. Others are not so prolific.
I love annuals and always have some around
