"Besides providing garden color all summer long, annuals are useful for growing in a variety of situations. To learn more about which annuals do best under various conditions, go to the University of Illinois Extension Web site on Gardening with Annuals. The site lists annuals in the following categories: beginners, hanging baskets, edging, shade, full sun, shade, poor soil, moist and cool conditions, dry and hot conditions, cut flowers, hedges, and vines. There are also pages on planting, soil preparation, and care."

The Good Web Guide

"Nice design, and clear unambiguous writing - a useful site. This is an attractive site from the prolific University of Illinois gardening department. It’s useful for beginners, as it explains the difference between terms such as annuals, tender perennials, and seed-setting annuals that behave like perennials. Short articles and clear photos show how to deal with bedding plants, and give tips on watering and mulching. There’s also a useful section with suggestions for hanging baskets, shade, edging, poor soil, and even annual hedges."
