When the world wearies and ceases to satisfy (the pocketbook) – grow a Money Plant.
Lunaria – money plant, aka honesty (a word rarely used in the same sentence with money) grows by many names. It is a lovely herb for the garden. Plant just one, then watch them pop up everywhere two years later. A biennial, it’ll seed itself and surprise you when you least expect it. Like finding silver dollars (another of its names) lying in a garden bed. Its purple blossoms are fragrant, and its green coins when dried and rubbed together, reveal its silver. Other than being a pretty face in the garden and later in a dried arrangement, that’s about all it’s good for, as far as I know. Except for the part about how it wards off monsters, holds magical moon-charged dew, and somewhere, in some time, someone ate its roots – yikes. It’s just fun to watch and participate in – so go plant some money!
