Biennial plants are plants that takes two years to complete their biological lifecycle. During the first year of life the plant will usually grow leaves, stems, and roots, and it is then able to go into a period of dormancy during the cold winter months. Many biennials require a period of cold before they are able to flower. Biennial plants will normally produce fruits and seeds before they die. In the plant kingdom there are fewer biennials than annuals and perennials.
What is a Plant?
A plant is one of the two groups into which all living organisms are traditionally divided into; the other being animals. A plant is usually a stationery living organism and as such needs to absorb nutrients from its surroundings in order to grow and survive. Typically plants have roots which are the organs of a plant that normally lie below the surface of the soil; however there are some types of plants which do have aerial roots. Within the scientific classification chart plants belong to the Kingdom Plantae family.
Plant Life Cycle
The plant life cycle refers the lifespan duration or biological life of different plants from the time they sprout, to the time they grow into a mature plant, to producing fruits and seeds, to the time they die. The new seeds begin the new life cycle for the plant species. The life cycle is generally common to flowering plants. Plant life cycle can be grouped into the following categories: Annual Plants, Biennial Plants, and Perennial Plants.
