Money Plant

Lunaria annua. One might mistake Money Plant for a Garden Phlox in spring, when its sprays of pink or white flowers are similar in both form and color. But when Money Plant's flowers go to seed it's easy to understand how it came by its moniker. The seed pods are flattened and the size and shape of a silver dollar. They dry from green to shimmering silver and are wonderful in dried flower arrangements. Sow seeds outdoors in full sun or partial shade, in either fall or spring, after the last spring frost date, lightly covering them with soil. Thin seedlings to 12" apart. The plants, if left uncut, will self-seed prolifically but charmingly. Deer resistant. Biennial. Spring flowering. Height: 2' to 3'.

Average seed life: 1 to 2 years.

Lunaria annua. When Money Plant’s pink flowers go to seed, the seed pods are flattened and the size and shape of a silver dollar, and are wonderful in dried flower arrangements. Sow seeds outdoors in full sun or partial shade, in either fall or early spring. Cover them lightly with soil and keep them evenly moist until germination. Thin seedlings to 12" apart. Provide even moisture throughout the season. The plants prefer full sun in cooler climates, while they benefit from afternoon shade in warmer climates. They will produce only foliage the first year and flowers and seeds the second year before dying. The plants, if left uncut, will usually self-seed. To dry for arrangements, cut entire stems just as the seed pods lose their color, and hang upside down in a dark, dry place. When dry, gently remove the outer coverings to reveal the “silver dollars” inside. Biennial. Spring flowering. Height: 2' to 3'.
