Annual Flowers for Pots That Are Almost Impossible to Kill

1. Petunia

Sure, your mother grows them, but these flowers are ideal for first-time gardeners. Their candy-colored hues, which include pink, purple, yellow, apricot, red, white, and stripes, make them excellent choices for annual flower pots.

2. Verbena

Verbena is another spreading plant and an annual that looks great in containers because of its "cascading" quality, which can spill over retaining walls, pots, and baskets. Mini flower clusters are usually pink, purple, or white in color. 

3. Sweet Potato Vine

Lime green and purple are the traditional hues of this nearly unkillable trailing vine. To create a striking visual effect, group several types of sweet potato vine in a large container. The plant will thrive in either sun or shade as long as it is planted in well-drained soil.

4. Coleus

Coleus comes in a ton of interesting foliage combinations, ranging from a simple green to vibrant reds. Use them as accent pieces or group several together in an annual flower planter. Whether you're looking for sun-loving or shade-loving kinds, you may choose from a wide variety of beautiful foliage. 

5. Scaevola

Though these blue-purple, fan-shaped blooms seem minimal care, they actually like spending time in window boxes or baskets in the sun. Deadheading these lovely blooms is not necessary to maintain their health because they are also self-cleaning.
