Herbaceous refers to plants. They are plants with non-woody stalks. Their airborne development by and large dies back in wintry weather in the moderate or temperate zone, yet in cases where the herbaceous vegetation in query is perennials. All the "annual" vegetations are "herbaceous," but not each and every one of the herbaceous plants are annuals. An "annual" is a vegetation that dies on the whole at the closing stages of the budding season, both exceeding the ground and underneath it. "Perennials," by dissimilarity, stay alive the winter, even if their airborne development dies back.

Normally, when public speaks of "herbaceous" vegetation, they indicate perennials like peonies and bearded iris. The word "herbaceous" therefore applicable, permits us to differentiate such plants from a different group of perennials which are the trees and the shrubs.
