Annuals, Perennials & Groundcovers
Annuals complete their entire lifecycle within one year. These types of plants need to be replanted every year. Annuals offer some garden flexibility, since they are not a continuously cycling growth.
Perennials are plants that live for a number of seasons. Generally, a plant is considered a perennial if it survives for at least two years. This is enabled by their ability to produce their own seeds that begin growing once the climate becomes favorable again!
Groundcovers do exactly what the name implies – cover the ground to protect the soil from erosion and drought! They can also make the area more visually appealing by spreading over a large area to supplement and enhance your landscaping.
