What Exactly Does A Perennial Plant Mean?

Perennial plants are perennial. What does that mean, exactly?

There's a plant for just about every perennial need. Do you want to color? We have perennial plants that produce flowers in the color of your choice. Do you want to make a statement with height, or perhaps ground cover? No problem; we have perennial plants that grow to just the size you're looking for.

Oh, and did we mention perennials are perennial? Perennial plants come back year after year after year, sometimes for decades—all provided they're given proper care. That means no extra planting time spent each fall preparing bare-root perennial beds with soil amendments such as compost and fertilizer before new spring growth begins to emerge. And it also means you'll never find yourself tilling up perennial roots. A perennial lives for more than ten years. They come back year after year like clockwork (or should I say perennial). This is beneficial to gardeners and landscapers because perennial plants don't need replanted every year or even every other year.
