Perennials Usually Live Longer Than Expected, And They Are One Of The Most Sought-Out Ornamental Plants
Perennials are plants expected to live longer than two years. Unlike annual plants such as zinnias, marigolds, radish, which complete their life cycle in one growing season, and biennials need two growing seasons to mature and go to seed, perennials may need a go-to source every year. Their dormancy plays a factor in their notable longevity before they bloom again when the following season rolls in. Even in their inactive phases, perennial plants remain dormant in the soil, but their root
conditions stay as they are as long as they have a steady supply of nourishment. If it is of any indication, this saying amongst gardeners describes perennials perfectly: "The first year they sleep, the second year they creep, and the third year they leap."
Perennials are not all sunshine and rainbows as most may think, as each one has its preferences, and it requires certain maintenance levels. Some perennials require pruning to encourage new growth, and some need mulch to absorb their nutrients at a steady rate during their dormancy. While replanting perennials every year is rarely on the agenda, they will eventually require digging up and segregating before these divisions need replanting. Other perennial varieties need separating every couple of years, and some, have no need for division unless you want to make more plants. Monitoring for pests and diseases is still critical with perennials. It is already enough of a loss to have a perennial garden wrought by ailments, but losing a decades-old bed of perennials crosses the line. And since perennials grow in large clusters, it is elementary for a disease or feeding insect to affect the whole clump quickly. You need to check on your perennial plants regularly throughout the growing season.
Some perennial plants require other maintenance jobs, but they are not labor-intensive. While one should not compare perennials and annuals to one another due to each plant's charm, perennials have the advantage of compensating for your complex, grueling work with long-lived blooms and steady growth rates.
