Question: I would like some colorful ideas to use as I am landscaping my new home. I would like annuals that are dwarf or grow only up to 8-10". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Answer: You didn't say whether you were planting in a sunny spot or in shade, but some of the low growing plants include impatiens, Asparagus fern, browallia, Johnny jump-ups, New Guinea impatiens, pansies, begonias, border dahlias, petunias, ageratum, alyssum, marigolds, salvia and lobelia. Enjoy your new landscape!
