a small plant/flower that ONLY grows for one season/summer?

this may seem like a strange request!!!
Are there any plants/ flowers that only grow for one season and dont grow again....

I know roses/fuschias etc grow every year..... I just want a flower for now..... and not to come back next year.....

I know probably a strange request, have my personal reasons.....

Know absolutely nothing about flowers......

Plenty of choices but a particularly attractive group is Chrysanthemums. Usually die with onset of frost otherwise they are a reliable performer throughout the summer.

Frost-prone annuals is what you are looking for.

The summer bedding plants will be arriving into garden centres and Woodies, B&Q etc around now. Most of those will die off in the cold weather. You can buy trays of them quite cheaply.
Look for non-hardy annuals.

The most popular ones you will pick up in the large supermarkts and particularly look out for Bizzie lizzies, pansies and violas, Lobelia, petunia, marigolds.......
