Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: annual/biennial/perennial

An annual plant is a plant that completes its entire life cycle from seed to seed in one year. A biennial plant is one that grows vegetatively in the first year, flowers in the second year, then dies. A perennial plant is one that grows forever, potentially, producing flowers either every year or only in some years. These distinctions are not hard and fast; many plants that grow as annuals in a cold climate grow as perennials in a warmer climate.

In this simulation there is a distinction between annuals and perennials, but biennials are not distinct from perennials.

How it works:
