The Lunaria Silver Dollar (Lunaria annua) is a most unusual biennial. Also called Money Plant, Honesty Plant, and Moonwort, it produces small, fragrant lavender blossoms with a separate seed pod in the form of a flat, translucent disk membrane. When immature, the disk is green. As the plant dies, the seed pod turns as silvery and shimmery as a full moon or silver dollar coin. Grows 2'-3' tall on thin, hairy stems with serrated, heart-shaped foliage. Fantastic in dried floral arrangements or wreaths.
