This refers to whether a plant is an annual, biennial or perennial. Annuals complete their life cycles in one year; biennials produce foliage the first year and bloom and go to seed the second year; perennials can live for more than two years.
This refers to whether the seed should be sown early indoors and the seedlings transplanted outside later, or if the seed should be sown directly in the garden at the recommended planting time.

DaisiesTricolor daisies didn't grow well at all. Very small, not thriving at all.

gorgeous unique flowersThese flowers so beautiful and unique that I'm going to the trouble of growing them from seed again this year! Each flower is a slightly different color, and in very unique muted but colorful shades. They handled dry soil and strong sun, and probably needed staking, but I didn't do it. They grew well kinda flopped over, and were still beautiful.

Pretty but smallThese flowers are quite unusual and very pretty. The description notes that the flowers are 3" across, not quite. Mine were about half that size. However, still a pretty flower but don't expect big blooms. Also a very hearty plant... my gardener mowed over these thinking they were weeds earlier in the spring. They bounced back despite the hack job and now are blooming.

Very PrettyDon't let the picture fool you. This flower is not as full as it appears. The rings of color are more white/burgandy/yellow. It is a petite flower. I was still in awe of how beautiful it turned out to be. I was not quite as attentive as I should have been with them, but they there were still plenty of small buds. It took longer to flower than I thought also. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something different!!
