These annuals and perennials are found naturally from Europe to eastern Siberia. They are grown for their pretty mauve flowers and decorative seedpods, called silicles.
The scientific name is Lunaria but commonly called Honesty, Money Plant, Money Penny, Moonwort, Satin Flower and Silver Dollars, the name is derived from luna, the moon, and refers to the shape of the seedpods.
Monnaie du Pape in French.
Judaspenning in Dutch.
This is the final product, the end of summer, you cut them, peel off two papery sides in which are all the seeds, you are left with this delicate silver center. They brighten up your house for a long time if you like that!
Wishing you a golden day and thanx for you visit, M, (*_*)
