Unfortunately, one of my favorite plants – Digitalis or Foxglove – is a biennial.
By definition, this means the plant needs two years to complete its life cycle, as compared to an annual’s one year term and a perennial’s indefinite lifespan.
This has both pluses and minuses: plus – the plant gets to live longer, minus – it takes that second year to bloom.
Gardening is known to teach patience, and perhaps some day it will for me too. Biennials may be the first step in that lesson.
