Subsequently, one may also ask, what type of plants come back every year?
Unlike annuals, perennials tend to bloom for just a short time — one to three weeks — each year. Examples of popular perennial flowers include tulips, asters, black-eyed susans, and lilies. Perennials generally do not have to be replanted each year.
Likewise, what does perennial plant mean? A perennial plant or simply perennial is a plant that lives more than two years. Perennials—especially small flowering plants—that grow and bloom over the spring and summer, die back every autumn and winter, and then return in the spring from their rootstock, are known as herbaceous perennials.
Secondly, what is the difference between annuals and perennials?
Annual plants live for one growing season and then die, while perennials regrow every spring. The difference is genetic, and yet, a clever "plant gene therapy" technique can be used to change an annual into a perennial.
