Are these homework questions? If so you should be tagging it as homework. But please keep in mind that stackexchange sites aren't here to do your homework for you. –  GWW Jan 15 '12 at 0:30
    
A biennial, then? –  user132 Jan 15 '12 at 1:23

Hi @Problemaniac - welcome to the community. As mentioned above please use the homework tag where possible. Also, from a formatting standpoint the Q1/2/3 isn't necessary =) Regarding the close motion on this question, I do agree that this is perhaps too localised. –  Rory M Jan 15 '12 at 11:55
    
@Rory: I suggested an edit to make the question less localised and more fit for this site. –  user24 Jan 15 '12 at 12:49
    
@TimN I'm limited as to how many characters I can place in the edit approve reason box - I think that it should be up to the OP to remove the examples part of the question when and if the community closes it as too localised. Without the removal of the middle point then the edit would meet the too minor category so unfortunately I couldn't approve it - please do keep submitting edits to other questions however =) –  Rory M Jan 15 '12 at 13:06

The plants are called Biennial plants.

Examples would be carrots or dandelions.
