Answer #1 · Chason Arthur's Answer · A perennial is a plant that lives for at least two years or more and comes back from the roots. Daylilies, hosta lilies, peonies and iris are good examples of popular, long-lived perennials that will return for many years in your garden. Biennials, on the other hand, are plants that complete their entire life cycle in two years, though many, such as foxgloves, will reseed themselves.)
