"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.
