Perennials are kind of plants that live for years and mostly grow little buds that bloom into roses of different colors. Perennials grow through different seasons of the year; it depends on the type of the plant. Some of them could be just inches high and others grow up to 2-3 feet. The common characteristic among them is that all of them are able to bloom during bad weather and even lack of water (For flowers that bloom in winter, check this post).
