The life cycle of a plant is how long it takes for a plant to reproduce and how often. At first glance, the life cycle includes three main groups: annuals, biennials, and perennials. Due to the northern climate of Quebec, we have broadened the spectrum by adding three subgroups: tender perennials, annuals that reseed and tender annuals.

Annuelle : Whether grown in cold or warm climates, the annual plant germinates, flowers, produces seeds and dies during the same season (cosmos).
