Money Plant

Lunaria annua

Money plant or honesty is a biennial named "annua." The coin-shaped seed pods give it one common name, and the fanciful notion that it "grows only for an honest gardener" the other.

The seed pods are silicles, a Mustard family specialty along with more elongated siliques -- dry, flat, many-seeded pods which have seams along both margins.
