Honesty (Lunaria annua) is an annual which has lovely bright spikes of purple or white fragrant flowers in summer.

In winter the seed pods are round (moon-shaped) and when the skin drops off to release the seeds, a lovely translucent silver disc is left. Called ‘The Money Plant’, ‘Silver Dollars’, or ‘Chinese coins’.
