Perennial plants are very diverse and come in endless varieties. They can suit any kind of landscape and garden design if planted well. They can meet your requirements and make the garden lively and vibrant with flowering or non- flowering varieties. Most gardeners define perennial plants as plants which live for more than two years. Some perennial plants will live indefinitely as long as they are well cared-for, while others will start to look scraggly and die off within a few years. Because perennial plants return, they usually require more intensive care than annuals, which can be planted and essentially ignored beyond basic watering. Perennials usually require shaping, soil conditioning, and other extra care to thrive. Some perennials are low-lying herbaceous plants which can be used as groundcovers, hedges, and so forth. Others develop into small shrubs, and some can grow quite large.
Many perennial plants are very woody, with well-established networks of roots, and they put up fresh shoots every year from their rootstock. Propagation of perennials can be accomplished with seeds, cuttings, or splittings of root balls, with many nurseries preferring to divide their perennials once they are established to ensure that their plants are clones. After all, perennial plants versatility makes them ideal for any landscape. Perennial plants can be planted in flower beds, borders, backgrounds or even containers.
