It is definitely a biennial, it blooms one year drops its seed, grows the second year and blooms the following year, very much like a foxglove.

HI, Winston,
Lunaria is, as defined by the RHS, an annual or biennial, sometimes completing its lifecycle in one year, other times, as Elaine correctly stated, in two as a biennial.
