These are plants that complete their life cycle within a two-year period. In the first year, a biennial plant grows from seed. It forms its roots, stem and leaves. The plant then survives over winter, although not all biennials are suited to survived winter, it also depends on how mild or harsh it gets, depending on the area. In the second year, the plant produces flowers. Once the plant sets seed, it dies.

Many flowers and a few herbs are biennials, such as foxgloves, poppies (some varieties), angelica, parsley, onions,carrots, cabbage, and hollyhocks.
