What is the difference between annual and perennial?
Updated: Jan 26, 2022
Annual plants only last one growing season. You plant them in spring, they bloom in summer, and they die in the fall.
Perennial plants can live many years, and they will come back on their own each spring. Perennials often divide and multiply, meaning that starting with 1 bulb this year could lead to 3-4 bulbs appearing next year. Perennials are a favourite for both beginners and budget-conscious gardeners.
