Perennial Plants

A Perennial Plant is one that lives for more than two years. Therefore, perennial means "through the years" and differentiates Perennial Plants from plants with a shorter life span, such as annuals and biennials

Perennial Plants have little or no woody growth since they are flowering ground plants that grow and bloom in spring and summer, then die back in autumn and winter. Perennial Plants will re-bloom in the spring due to their rootstock, which allows the Perennial Plant to survive during the winter, given the appropriate conditions, making them herbaceous Perennial Plants. There are also evergreen Perennial Plants such as Bergenia, which bear no woody stems yet retain a mantel of leaves all year. Dwarf-shrubs are Perennial Plant that will have hibernating buds on their woody stem. The branch may go partially or fully bare in winter, growing new leaves and flowers in season.

Gardening Considerations 

A Perennial Plant grown in its natural habitat can be treated as a garden annual and can be replanted every year from seed, cuttings, or divisions. For example, if you plant tomato vines in their natural habitat, they will continue to live in their tropical or sub-tropic environment for several years. However, grown in temperate regions, the tomato vine will be dormant like an annual in winter, bearing fruit in the warmer weather.  Gardeners enjoy perennial Plants in landscaping in many capacities. Use tall Perennial Plants such as Pink Hibiscus or Orange Day Lilies as a backdrop against a garden fence. These Perennial Plants are an attractive option for your home garden and reappear every season. Shorter Perennial Plants with greenery that lasts all year, such as a Butterfly Bush, will host pollinators in spring and add some greenery to a winter landscape while its flowers are dormant. Perennial dwarf shrubs, such as a White Wigelia or Red Crepe Myrtle, will continue to bring your landscape to life each spring.

Perennial Plants look terrific in many garden settings. For woodland-style gardens, consider planting Perennials among ferns and garden grasses, which are also shallow herbaceous rooted, Perennial Plants that will bloom annually and sync with flowering Perennial Plants.

Perennial Plants thrive best in partial sun and can also be located in dappled shade as long as they receive several hours of good light per day. In gardens where pollinators and hummingbirds thrive, place your Perennial Plants where you and yours can enjoy watching them during the season. 

 When growing fruit-bearing Perennial Plants that enjoy hotter weather, ensure that you have some irrigation or watering system in place in case of drought. Flowering and fruit-bearing Perennial shrubs and trees of this nature, such as the blackberry bush, plum, or cherry trees, will add beautiful flowers and fruit to your home orchard-style garden all season. In addition, the fruits of these Perennial trees can be made into jams, jellies, compotes, and pies, which you can enjoy all year!

 Consider Perennial Plants for the bulk of your garden landscape when you must use containers, such as for urban-style roof-top garden landscapes. Perennial grasses, ferns, and flowering plants such as the Daffodils, Butterfly Weed, Painted Trillium, and Jewel Weed is lovely Perennial Plants that will bring color to your urban garden landscape all year. In addition, you can relocate the containers inside during cold or severe winter weather.
