What makes some plants perennials and others annuals? Why aren’t they all one or the other?

Every year, I plant a garden with perennials and annuals.  I have always wondered why some plants grow back while others do not.  Perennials are so much easier to maintain because they grow back year after year, but many of the most beautiful plants are annuals.  Why aren’t they all one or the other?

    Annuals are grown from seeds that must be panted each year but the blooms tend to last throughout the summer. Perennials are grown from bulbs, plus they usually only bloom for a couple of weeks a year. They last 3-5 years and sometimes longer if you give them good care. Fertilizer and mulch to hold in the moisture is helpful for either of these.
