What is the difference between ´annuals´ and ´perennials´ plants?

Annuals or Perennials

Keep in mind, when selecting plants for container gardens, that an 'annual' plant lasts only one year (or growing season) whereas the 'perennial' lasts (or is active) through the year or for many years to come. In most cases, I prefer the perennials.
