The herbaceous perennial plants are plants whose life cycle lasts for several years. They differ from bushes as they are herbaceous plants, which means that they grow only during the summer season, and with the arrival of the cold they completely lose their aerial parts, with growth starting again with the arrival of spring.
For this reason, they do not have woody stems, but only green vegetation that lasts a few months. Most of the perennials grown in the garden have beautiful flowers in spring or autumn, or decorative foliage. Typical garden perennials are aubrezia and armeria, which are small and spring-flowering. Many perennials, such as dahlias, grow from rhizomatous roots, and some perennial plants, like strawberries, also give fruit.
