Buy Lunaria rediviva perennial honesty: Pretty flowers and decorative seed pods

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    From late spring, upright stems are topped by loose clusters of fragrant, lilac to white flowers. Once these have faded, flattened seed pods follow, and these start to resemble big, papery coins as they age. If undisturbed, these will stay on the plant well into winter, providing a long season of interest. Alternatively, cut them and add them to dried arrangements.

  • Garden care: Cut back faded stems to the base after they lose their appeal. Sow collected seed in spring.
