Excerpt from An Introduction to the Knowledge and Practice of Gardening, Vol. 2

Flowers, as to their cultivation, are classified into annuals, biennials and perennials. Annuals are those that are sown, flower, and die, within a year. Biennials are those that are sown one year, and flower and die the next. Perennials are those that do not flower the year they are sown, bu the next, and continue to live years afterwards, some sewer, some more: Of this class there is a great variety, (perhaps fifty to one of the last) mostly fibrous rooted, some fleshy, some bulbous, and some tuberous, &c. Most of the perennials are annual in their stalks, which die down to the ground in winter, and fresh shoots rise in the spring. But strictly speaking, all of each class are not annual, biennial, and perennial; for some of the annuals come a second, or a third year, as Chinese bolybock, and Indian pink, and other would live through the winter if housed. Of the biennial, the same may be said of the stock July flower, sweet William, and wall flower; only these plants do not always live, and will not come so neat and strong as before, and are therefore to be sown, or propagated, as they are classed, in order to have a certain and fine blow. Of the perennials, some do not flower well above three of four years, as the bolybock, &c. for which s showing should of course take place the year before they are wanted.
