CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

BIENNIAL

A biennial plant is a flowering plant that takes two years to complete its biological lifecycle. In the first year, the plant only grows leaves, stems, and roots, then it enters a period of dormancy over the colder months.
