semi-herbaceous
Explanation:
-> "Another group of perennials are the semi-herbaceous bunch. These include plants like black-eyed Susans, shasta daisies, and goldenrod. These perennials shoot up long flowering stems that die back after blooming, but the crown of basal leaves at the bottom of the plant are evergreen. To winterize these plants, cut back the dead and dying flowering stalks and leave the green leaves. The plants use these leaves to photosynthesize throughout the winter, and they also help add some much-needed color to the winter garden. "
