Hardy annuals can be sown directly into their flowering positions in the spring and will tolerate a certain amount of cold. Well-known flowers such as sweet peas, poppies, stocks and sunflowers fall under this category, as do some of the more unusual flowers - gomphocarpus & ratibida for example.
Asarina antirrhiniflora (Mixed)
Maurandella antirrhiniflora, Violet Twining SnapdragonThe very pretty 2.5cm (1in) long snapdragons that will thrive in sun or shade. The "Climbing Snapdragon" comes in shades of red, pink, violet and blue, with speckled creamy lips. This attractive quick-growing half-hardy annual will twine itself around trellises, or creep down from pots. The pale green foliage gives a soft foil for the dainty flowers. Also useful for pots or hanging baskets, flowering from early summer to late winter if protected from frost. Grows to 120-180cm (4-6ft). More info
