What is a biennial plant?

Biennial Plant Definition– A biennial plant experiences its full life cycle within two years.

Ideal Home Garden Explains

Biennial plants germinate, grow to adulthood and die within two years, similar to annuals which experience their complete life cycle within one year. During a biennial’s first year, it develops its root system, grows and then becomes dormant during the winter. They then bloom during the warmer months of their second year, after which they die. Common biennials include parsley, foxglove, evening primrose, forget-me-nots, pansies and black eyed Susan.
