What's the difference between annuals and perennials?

The technical difference is that annuals grow, flower, set seeds, and die all in one growing season. Perennials are plants that live for two or more years. In your mild gardening climate, you may have annuals that persist for more than one season, but the norm is for them to die off when the weather gets cold.

Hope this clarifies things for you!
