A hardy biennial which flowers in the spring with purple flowers and wonderful marbled leaves often edged in red and growing to 36"( 90cm). The seed cases are like translucent discs that can be used in dried flower arrangements.
In the spring, sow two seeds per single pot outside in a shady sheltered spot and plant out in full shade or part shade when large enough. The plants will flower in the following year. Late sown plants (June onwards) will take a second year to flower. They may hybridise with other Lunaria in the vicinity. Rabbits will browse the leaves.
Height 36" ( 90cm)
