Honesty (also known as Money Plant, or Lunaria), is an old-fashioned cottage garden plant, known more for its seeds than its flowers.


The distinctive flat, translucent papery pods, which hold the dark seeds, are often used in dried flower arranging but, if left on the plant, they’re good for adding winter interest to the garden. However, the purple or white fragrant flowers in spring and early summer are very attractive in their own right and are also attractive to pollinating insects.


As well as providing flowers for pollinators, honesty is used as a caterpillar food plant by the orange-tip butterfly. Look out for green caterpillars on the stems of plants in summer, and the almost triangular pupae, which remain on the plant throughout winter, before the new season’s butterflies hatch in mid-spring.
