In general terms, plant lifespan has as much to do with growing conditions as it does with genetics. Plant lifespans are listed as short, moderate or long: short = 20-30 years, Moderate = 30-50 years, Long > 50 years. Spirea has a long lifespan; Acer negundo has a short lifespan; Grevillea has a moderate lifspan.
