Definition as written by Windy:

A biennial is a plant that when grown from seed takes two growing seasons to mature. The first season is usually basal growth, the second season the plant is similar to an annual in that it flowers, sets seed and dies. Some biennials appear as perennials because they self-seed freely.

Definition as written by pokerboy:

A biennial is a flowering plant that grows all its foliage in its first year and flowers, sets seed and then dies the second year.
