Lunaria, Money Plant

Short Description

Grown for the silvery white seed pods.

Full Description

Money Plant is a biennial that is grown for the silvery white, flattened, disc-like seed pods. Plants bloom with clusters of lavender flowers in spring and make pods second summer after seeds are sown. It is these coin-shaped pods that make it attractive in dried arrangements. GARDEN HINTS: To dry seed pods; cut when fully developed, bunch and hang stems upside down in an airy place until completely dry, 2-3 weeks. Remove brown husks on sides of seed pod by gently rubbing between thumb and finger.

  • Lunaria, Money Plant is rated 2.75 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lunaria, Money Plant I have grown this plant in two backyards in Michigan! Just throw the seeds on the desired spot in the fall, and they will sprout either the next spring or the second spring. This plant is fairly aggressive and once they take hold, you will have beautiful purple flowers! After the flowers drop off in summer, there will be green flat plants on the stems. Leave these alone until they start to dry up and somewhat fall off. There will be seeds inside these pods. Gently rub off the flat outer pods and gather the seeds that are inside the pods to start additional gardens if you like. Be careful while doing this because the inside of the pods are the white silky plants (shown in the picture) that can be used to decorate! Of course your crop will be thicker the next year because of the seeds that will drop on the ground. Another good thing is that the seeds can be used for bio-fuel if someone can come up with a good way to harvest them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Growing Beautifully I bought as seeds in 2009 and was disappointed nothing grew, but suddenly in 2010 I have been delighted to find two-foot-tall purple flowered plants making "money" in those circular flat pods. Not sure if last year was just a bad year for growth or it needed extra time to settle into my garden. I'm thrilled!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from None germinated I'm very disappointed to say that not one seed germinated. Will try again in the Fall since I am Zone 8b.
