Perennials are plants that continue to grow year after year. These sturdy and reliable plants form the backbone of any home garden design, and they make a great choice for indoor plants or commercial spaces.
Perennials are plants that grow continuously for more than 2 years. This sets them apart from annual and bi-annual plants, which die off in the winter and then need to be replanted. Perennials will still change with the passing seasons, but they only need to be planted once.
Naturally, this makes them very popular with all kinds of gardeners. Most perennials tend to be resilient and generally more low-maintenance than annuals. Watching them continue to grow and grow throughout the years can be a highly rewarding gardening experience.
A hugely diverse number of plants fall under the umbrella of perennial, so you’ll find a wide selection of our range here. If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to planning your perennial garden, read on for more information or ask one of our helpful gardening experts.

Did you know?
You’ll find that when some gardeners refer to perennials, they are often only discussing flowering shrubs or other low-growing plants. However, many familiar plants are also classified as perennial plants. Here are some of the most popular:
Flowering Perennials. Perennial flowers are extremely popular, forming the backbone of many home garden designs. Try planting flowers that bloom at different times of the year, creating a changing landscape of colours throughout the seasons.
Trees and Shrubs. All trees and shrubs are perennial plants. You only have to plant them once, and although some go dormant in Winter, they will continue to grow from the same root structure you first planted. A well-cared-for tree may live for decades.
Indoor Plants. Many of the most popular indoor plants, including all ferns and palms, are also perennial in nature. Their reliable consistency and year-round foliage make them sought after for interior design, especially in commercial spaces.
