A worthy Investment!!! Will provide a bountiful return for years to come! ***Please Read: This has become a very popular item, and for good reason! But I just want all new gardeners to make sure and read the info below. Lunaria is a biennial/perennial and thus is not recommended for starting indoors, she needs some ground to be able to come back each year for you :)

Money Plant is a biennial famous for its silvery white, flattened, disc-like seed pods popular in dried arrangements. While famous for the seed pods, this plant's flowers are STRIKING in the spring garden! The first year mainly sprouts foliage of heart-shaped leaves but the second year brings wonderfully fragrant lavender spring flowers and the famous silvery seed pods that give this plant its names. Silver Dollar plants grow 2-3 ft. tall. Very attractive to butterflies, bees & other pollinators.

Plant the seed in spring or summer but do save a few and plant them this fall as well. This method will give you flowers and pods yearly. The reason for the staggered planting is that Honesty Plant is a biennial. The seeds germinate and the plant grows during one year but the flowers and “coin pods” don’t come until the next year. Some of the seed you plant at the first of summer may sprout and have enough time to flower this year. Great for a landscaped yard and a wonderful plant for naturalizing in borders, woodlands, or wild gardens.

Popular in winter arrangements, Money Plant was introduced to England from Germany in the late 1500s and brought to America by the Puritans. Also called Honesty Plant, Silver Dollar Plant, Satin Flower, Penny Flower, Judas' Penny, and Moonwort, Lunaria annua Lunaria bienna.

According to historical record, Thomas Jefferson once grew this species in his extensive experimental gardens at Monticello. The genus name "Lunaria" means "moon," referring to the appearance of Money Plant seed pods.

***Money plant is a biennial, meaning it grows leaves the first year and flowers the second. After flowering, it dies. However, it readily reseeds itself to create a permanent stand.

~ planting ~

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost for bloom the following spring. Sow in late summer/fall for blooms the following year.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. Does not transplant well. Sow in biodegradable pots to reduce root disturbance.

Days to Emerge: 14 – 20 days

Seed Depth: Barely cover

Seed Spacing: A group of 3 seeds every 12" – 15"

Thinning: When 1" tall thin to 1 every 12" – 15"


~ growing ~

Lunaria are easy to grow and require little to no attention. They can be grown in almost any soils and thrive in partial and shady areas.

Once your Lunaria is started, you can largely leave it to itself. Water them only during droughts when the soil has dried out. You can also add a general purpose fertilizer once a month if growth seems slow and especially in very poor soils.

~ harvesting ~

Ornamental Honesty Plant seed pods make long-lasting additions to dried flower arrangements. After the pods have completely dried on the plant, cut the stems and hang them upside down in a dry place until the entire stem is dry. If desired, carefully remove the outer layer of the seed pods to reveal the silvery inner layer.


~ additional instructions ~
- all seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
- detailed instructions are included with every seed package.
- inquire for discounts available on bulk quantities.

This is my first purchase ever thru Etsy. What a great first impression of a company I had fast service and mailing. I purchased some Seeds so I have not yet planted them but I’m sure they’ll be lovely and I can’t wait until I see them bloom. Thank You
