Also known as Honesty, of the genus Lunaria, silver dollar
plants are named for their fruit, with pods dry to flat silverish discs
about the size of ? you guessed it! ? silver dollars. They hail from
Europe and were one of the first flowers grown in the dooryard gardens
of the New World for their pods and edible roots. They are members of
the family Brassicaceae or mustard family, which is evident in their
foliage: fast-growing single stems that can reach about two feet high
with broad oval leaves that are coarsely toothed.
There is nothing mustard-like about the flowers, however. They are
delicate, four-petaled, pink to purple blossoms grown in racemes or
clusters atop the long stems and bloom in early to mid-summer. The seed
pods produced by these dainty flowers are what make caring for a money
plant worthwhile. By late summer, the large flat seed pods have dried to
silvery discs that show off the seeds inside.
Maybe those gardeners who consider the flower to be a pest have a
valid argument. Once you learn how to grow money plants, they tend to
become permanent additions to the landscape and pop up anywhere except
where you wanted them. Even some experts refer to them in their money
plant growing info as weeds. Shame on them! They certainly aren?t
suitable for more formal gardens, but they can be a delight elsewhere.
Still, there are some very good reasons for caring for money plants in your Garden. Approx. 35 Seeds/Pkg.
