Plant Information

Money plant's flowers are striking in the spring garden, but the name alludes to the round, flat seedpods that resemble coins. It's botanical name, Lunaria (as in "lunar") comes from their resemblance to the moon.

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. (If you don't want lots of seedlings, just cut off the seedpods.) It prefers part shade and moist soil.

    Best Uses

      Comments about American Meadows Money Plant Seeds:

      I spread these on an empty bank Fall 2011 and they came up to about 6 inches. I mulched them over for the winter and this spring I was the envy of the whole neighborhood- they grew over 2 feet high. Not only did I have seeds for next year but I had the stems with empty seed pods for dried arrangements. VERY HAPPY :)

      Beautiful

      By 

      from Michigan

      Comments about American Meadows Money Plant Seeds:

      A friend of mine gave me several small plants 2 years ago and what a beautiful addition to my garden! They are in full bloom now and just a delight. For me, I don't care where they pop up at but people are more particular. But I figure if that is where God wants them to grow, who am I to doubt it. I love these flowers!

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
