Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
Money Plant, or Honesty, is a self-seeding biennial named for its showiest feature--its 2-foot stalks of silvery, coin-shaped seedpods, which are attractive in dried arrangements. It was among the first European flowers grown in American gardens and was valued for its seedpods and edible roots. Seeing the small purple flowers on April 25, 1767, Jefferson remarked, "Lunaria still in bloom, an indifferent flower." Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.
Native Distribution: Central Europe
Direct sow seeds outdoors once the soil can be worked in early spring. The plants will form a mound of foliage the first year and will bloom the following spring. Approximately 45-50 Money Plant seeds per packet.
