The Q&A Archives: Great annuals for Florida climate

Question: We just moved here in the South of Florida, and we have periodic rains this time of the year. What are the best annuals that we can plant with minimal maintenance. We also travel from time to time, we love flowering plants but can't afford time to care for them. So, could you recommend the best annuals that we can still plant this time of the year.

Thanks and all the best.....

Answer: Esmeralda,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

The following web sites are among the best references for annual flowers options in your area:

I would also suggest you contact your County Extension Office (3245 College Avenue
Davie, FL 33314; (954) 370-3725). They should have some information on hand, which would be useful to you.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
