Perennial, lives for several years, many years for some
Annuals germinate, flower and seed in one growing season.
biennials germinate one year and flower the next

half hardy means they'll probably die in the winter - too cold for them
Tender - they will die in the winter
Perennials, biennials and annuals can be hardy, half hardy or tender.
