Wondering what annuals others like.
I like:
four o'clocks
sweet peas
blue bonnets
indian paintbrush
indian blanket
any daisy
baby's breath
Bells of Ireland
just to name a few. Some I have growing some I can't seem to grow and others are just pretty and I've never tried
I love zinnias. They’re so drought tolerant and bees and hummers love them too. I switched from petunias to geraniums in my containers on my deck as they handle hot dry conditions better.

One fav of mine is gazanias and they’re hard to find around my area.
Too many to list I don’t usually plant annuals I need to start some from seeds as I have lots of seeds
I mainly use annuals in my hanging baskets and pots. Not so much in my garden beds. I have thrown out seeds to fill in while I wait for my perennials to fill in.
