In addition to coming in many colors, annual flowers come in a big array of sizes. When you are planning your garden, you can add interest by placing plants of different heights in different areas or adjacent to each other. Many annuals reach a height of between 12 and 24 inches. Plants of this height work well on their own, behind shorter plants, or in front of taller plants.
