Whats the difference between a perennial and a annual plant?

Hi, Perennials come back year after year (if you plant appropriate species for your zone) and annuals are tropical in nature and bloom all summer and die with first frost.

Perennials come back year after year, bearing in mind that you leave in the appropriate zone for that plant. Annual often refers to a plant grown outdoors in the spring and summer and surviving just for one growing season.
