  Biennial plant
Under extreme climatic conditions a biennial plant may 'bolt' through the separate stages of its lifecycle in a very short period of time (eg.3 or 4 months instead of 2 years).
If a normally biennial plant is grown in extremely harsh conditions it is likely to be treated as an annual because it will not survive the winter cold.
Examples of biennial plants are parsley, silverbeet[?], Sweet William[?], and carrots.

 PLANT - Definition
Note: Plants are divided by their structure and methods of reproduction into two series, ph[ae]nogamous or flowering plants, which have true flowers and seeds, and cryptogamous or flowerless plants, which have no flowers, and reproduce by minute one-celled spores.
Self-supporting plants always contain chlorophyll, and subsist on air and moisture and the matter dissolved in moisture, and as a general rule they excrete oxygen, and use the carbonic acid to combine with water and form the material for their tissues.
The movements of climbing plants, of some insectivorous plants, of leaves, stamens, or pistils in certain plants, and the ciliary motion of zo["o]spores, etc., may be considered a kind of voluntary motion.

 Perennial plant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A perennial plant or perennial (Latin per, "through", annus, "year") is a plant that lives for more than two years.
Herbaceous perennials are plants that do not form woody tissue and the term perennial more commonly describes these plants, since woody plants (i.e., trees and shrubs) are always perennials.
For example, in temperate regions a perennial plant may grow and bloom during the warm part of the year, with the foliage dying back in the winter.

Biennials are a type of plant that often will grow just a little in your garden when first planted, and in the second year it will grow even more and bloom, and in the third year it will not grow or produce.
Biennials are some of the easiest plants to grow if you have a little patience to allow them to grow and not to move them.
In caring for biennial plants, be sure to mulch the areas where the plants will be hibernating all winter long, to give them a little extra protection from the harsh winters that can kill off some plants that are left exposed to the freezing temperatures for the longest periods of three months or more.
