Money Plant is a biennial grown for its fruit, called silicles, that are ornamental when dried. The plant may self seed or live for 3 years even though it is technically biennial. The flowers are reddish violet. The plant grows in shade or sun and any moist garden soil. Transplanting is difficult however the plant becomes a weed in some gardens. Hang the silicles upside down to dry. The green outer covering peels off to reveal the silvery translucent "silver dollars."

The seed germinates in 10 to 14 days at 70 degrees and can be planted directly into the garden.
