A perennial plant is one that lives from year to year, for an indefinite period of time, because of the propagation (not just growth) by the roots. A perennial plant may be either evergreen or deciduous. Some perennials grow from bulbs and have no visible parts above the ground for part of the year.

Plants that are not perennial may be annual or biennial.
