How do annual flowers reproduce?
In this regard, what is the difference between annuals and perennials?
Annuals: Plants that flower and die in one season are annuals—although some drop seeds that grow new plants in the spring. Perennials: Perennials, on the other hand, come back for many seasons. While the top portion of a perennial dies back in winter, new growth appears the following spring from the same root system.
Furthermore, do annual plants die every year? Annual plants are plants with a life cycle that lasts only one year. They grow from seed, bloom, produce seeds, and die in one growing season. They then need to be replanted each spring. Unlike annuals, perennials tend to bloom for just a short time — one to three weeks — each year.
Subsequently, one may also ask, why do annuals die?
An annual uses up all of its non-specialized cells making flowers, and thus, after dropping seeds, it dies. The growth of the flowers is triggered by the plant sensing the length of day and amount of sunlight. When the light is just right, "blooming-induction genes" are triggered.
