Grape plants live for many years, and we might say, if we consider vegetative propagation, that they live for centuries. Vegetative propagation, which perpetuates the mother plant by cuttings or buds, is important for maintaining trueness of grape cultivars to type, because perennial woody species do not breed true from seed as is the case with annual crops.
