What is a perennial garden plant?
A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. The term is often used to differentiate a plant from shorter lived annuals and biennials. An annual plant is a plant that completes its life cycle, from germination to the production of seed, within one year, and then dies. A biennial plant is a flowering plant that takes two years to complete its biological life cycle. Perennial plants are going to create beauty in your garden year after year therefore they are your best financial investment.
