Lunaria annua | ChedglowRegular price $12.00 Save $-12.00
Honesty as it is also known is a very old plant which was introduced many hundreds of years ago Chedglow, is a striking new variety.
I adore Lunaria but the foliage on this plant takes it to another level! The leaves start of green and as they age the foliage gets a few dark blotches on them and then before you know it they are this striking dark chocolatey colour, the mix of botchy and full dark chocolate colour is a really interesting addition to the garden. The flowers are a lilac colour. This plant is a bienniel so in its first year it puts on its leaf growth before sending up the stems of lilac flowers that then of course turn into the beautiful silvery seed pods so this lovely plant provides interest all year round.
The seed pods of course can be dried and the plants will also self sow to ensure future generations of this striking new variety.
A shady well drained position and this little plant will make itself right at home in your garden. We also have another couple of Lunaria varieties Munstead Purple and Lunaria annua variegata which is also very attractive but numbers of this new little beauty are limited so don't wait too long if you want her in your garden!
