Old-fashioned biennials popular choice in the garden

Email

Many of the popular and old-fashioned flowers we grow are neither annuals nor perennials. They are biennials, which are plants that require two growing seasons to complete their life cycle. It is confusing because some biennials are grown and treated as annuals and some are actually short-term perennials. In the first season, the plants germinate and produce a mound of foliage called a rosette, which is a circular cluster of leaves just above the ground.
