Plants that live only two years and die are called biennials. Plants usually grow vegetatively (producing leaves) the first year and flowering the second.

Common biennials include: Foxglove (Digitalis), Money Plant (Lunaria), Lupines, sweet williams (Dianthus), Canterbury bells, hollyhocks, leeks (Allium), parsley, and cabbage.
