Language of Landscaping

Posted by Tammy Sons on

Wednesday, March 16

Do you ever feel like landscaping is a foreign language someone forgot to teach you? Some of the words seem more complicated than they have to be and some of them just plain don't make any sense at all! For instance, annual is pretty harmless. That's a plant that lives for a year. But biennial? Something to do with the bicentennial maybe? No, that's just a plant that lives for two years. A plant like parsley is a biennial. It produces leaves the first year, flowers the next year, then dies.


To be a perennial, technically a plant just has to live for more than two years, but most live far longer than that. Generally, a perennial can withstand a good winter. It may die back, but come the warmer weather, it'll spring back to life. Taken literally, shrubs and trees are perennials, too, but most people don't refer to them that way. Snow on the mountain, a perennial member of the parsley family, can be found in our mail order nursery.
