The Q&A Archives: Lunaria - Silver Dollar - Honesty - Money Plant

Question: What is the soil condition for planting the Silver Dollars plants. Should I plant them in moist soil or do they love dry soil conditions. Should they have shade or sun?

Answer: "Money Plant" will grow in either sun or shade, but prefers partial shade and a moderately fertile, well drained soil. Lunaria annua is actually a biennial. Experiment with the best times to grow it in your area. I suspect October planting may do best, although you may get results with a spring planting. Remember also that this plant readily self-sows.
