"a plant that lives for more than two years"
The term is often used to differentiate a plant from shorter-lived annuals. Generally the top portion of the plant dies back each winter and regrows the following spring from the same root system. Perennials take a year or two to get established.
The saying, "The first year they sleep, the second year they creep, and the third year they leap!" describes most perennials. However, depending on the rigors of local climate, a plant that is a perennial in its native habitat, or in a milder garden, may be treated by a gardener as an annual and planted out every year, from seed, from cuttings or from divisions.
