Tender perennial

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.

Tender perennial : these perennial plants are at the limit of their hardiness zone and must be protected to survive the winter. Some must be stored cool, but protected from frost so as not to die (artichoke, hibiscus roselle).
