How Are Perennials Different From Other Plants

In the world of plants, there are many kinds of plants. In the flower world, we generally have three types. Annuals, for example, perform their entire life cycle in one season. At the end of the growing season, everything that composes the plant — roots, stems, and leaves — is dead. Occasionally, you may find that stray seeds from annuals will grow again in random places if they are leftover from the previous season. Perennials persist season after season. The same root system is used each time while the top portion of the plant dies each winter. Every spring, the plant regrows. Some perennials keep their leaves through the colder months, making these varieties ideal for pleasing borders and groundcover. Tickseed, Shasta, and Ox-Eyed Daisy are perfect examples. Another type would have to be biennials. These plants need two years to finish their life cycle. During the first season, a small cluster of leaves will appear near the soil’s surface. Upon the second season, the plant will flourish and then die with the approach of winter. Sometimes, depending on where you are located, a plant can behave as either a perennial or an annual. This is because of local climates and geographic growing conditions. Additionally, weather patterns can fluctuate, which can alter the way a plant behaves.

Are There Different Kind Of Perennial Flowers

There are so many beautiful choices of flowers, and if you want to maintain their beauty, it’s important to know their needs. Here are the different kinds of perennials flowers based on sunlight:

Full sun perennial flowers need roughly six to eight hours of direct sunlight every day. Some types of these include Astilbe, Lavender, Chrysanthemum, Iris, Salvia, Artemisia, Poppy, Japanese Anemone and Daylily. These are lovely choices for an outdoor area or a section of an indoor room that gets prime sunlight.

Partly shaded perennial flowers do very well in places that get less sun like around trees, where the sun can gently penetrate the leaf canopy. These flowers are very colorful, and include varieties such as Bleeding Heart, Primrose, Liguria and Foxglove.

Full shaded perennial flowers are great if you have an area that is sheltered. Just because you have an area that doesn’t receive light, doesn’t mean it can be a home to some lovely perennials flowers. Ansonia, Ferns, Pulmonaria, Hosta and Brunner work perfectly in no-light areas.

One of the great things about perennials is that there are so many choices. This way, you can pick the best flowers for your space. Furthermore, there are perennials that require certain types of soils:

Perennial flowers for dry soil do not need to be watered on a regular basis. Perennial flowers like Ansonia, Lavender, Wormwood, Bluestar fall under this category.

Perennial flowers for average soil means that you should have a healthy, equal blend of sand, silt, and clay. The types of perennial flowers suited for this soil include Aster, Meadow Sage, Geranium, Alstroemeria, Peony, and Columbine.

Perennial flowers for moist soil require a very specific lifestyle. Not just any plant does well in moist soil. Don’t make the mistake, thus, of overwatering. The plants best designed for moist soil include Brunner, Cardinal Flower, Pulmonaria, Iris, and Astilbe.
