Perennial plants are also known as herbaceous plants, the name derives from the fact that the plants live for 2 or more years. There are a few thousand different types of perennial plant to choose from so you can choose which would look best for your garden. This type of plant would be perfect for flower beds and springtime displays as well as for your garden borders, where it is a particular popular choice.
Some of your perennials may disappear in winter, but they simply die back to a rootstock before magically blossoming strongly again in spring time. Some perennials such as Peony and Lupin will live all year round and will survive even the harshest of winters!
