A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. The term is often used to differentiate a plant from single-season annuals and biennials.. They are also distinguished as having little or no woody growth, Like annuals, there is a plethora of colors, from very small to quite large. .
Perennials, especially, flowering plant types, grow and bloom over the spring and summer, providing lots of colors, shapes, and sizes. Then they die back every autumn and winter, only to then return in the spring from their rootstock.
Perennials can be short-lived (only a few years) or they can be long-lived, as are some woody plants like trees. They include a wide assortment of plant groups, including orchids and certain grasses.
Hampton Roads is in Zone 8. Zone 8 perennials include Black Eyed Susans, Daylillies, Hibiscus, Ferns, and hundreds more.
