White Money Plant (Lunaria Biennis) - What's more attractive: the white flowers in the spring or the flat, translucent, round, papery seed cases in the fall? Money Plant seeds are grown for both features! Lunaria does put on quite a lovely show of white blooms in the spring, and the seed cases can be left on the plant for fall and winter appeal. The seed cases also can be preserved for use in dried arrangements and crafts. This plant also has the common names of Honesty and Silver Dollar.
Lunaria Silver Dollar is technically a biennial. This means that after the flower seed is sown, the first year will produce foliage and the second year will produce the display of flowers. After flowering, the white Honesty plant will typically die. However, it easily re-seeds itself and once it is established, it will continue to produce a display each years. Sow Money Plant seeds directly outdoors in the spring. Cover the flower seed lightly and keep moist. Money Plant Lunaria forms a tap root, so it is best to start the flower seed directly outside in a prepared seedbed.
