What is the difference between perennials and annuals with respect to how often they bloom, etc?

An annual is a plant that completes its lifecycle in one growing season. It grows, blooms, sets seeds, and dies all within one season. A perennial is a plant that lives two or more years. Plants have different blooming times; some bloom only once during the summer, others bloom continually from spring until fall. Perennials can be counted on to come back year after year. Hope this answers your question!
