What Is An Annual Plant?

If a plant germinates, grows to maturity, produces seed, and then dies in a single growing season it is an annual plant.

Annuals can be summer and winter types. Summer Annuals will live out this life cycle in the warmer months of the year. Winter Annuals will germinate in the fall or early winter and continue their lifecycle in the Spring then die after flowering and setting seeds.
