Annual or perennial

I can't figure out or find anything which can tell me whether this is an annual or a perennial. Is anyone able to confirm which it is. Many thanks.

    I think they're tender perennials, so they will go from year to year unless killed by frost - which they usually are.
    I did have some red ones that lasted 2 seasons a couple of years ago when we had a very mild winter

    @Pete.8...thanks for that. As they're in pots and if they end up being worthwhile, I can always bring them inside over winter.

    I've grown them a few times and always been very pleased with them - they flower their socks off all summer long

    I had a splendid Argyranthemum Jamaica Primrose that I took cuttings from in case the frost got it.  The frost did get it but the cuttings all took so now I have lots of it!  
    I bought another argyranthemum at the GC the other day, a red one, and am thinking, like you, that if it is worthwhile I'll take cuttings of that one too.

    Many argyranthemums are evergreen and perennial but not hardy so you'd need to take cuttings or keep it above 5C over winter.

    This site says this particular one is an annual -
