A hardy cottage garden classic, Money Plant is usually grown for its beautiful papery silver seed pods, but almost all parts of this plant are edible! Being in the brassica family, the leaves taste like mustard greens- delicious! The beautiful purple flowers are also edible and add a pop of colour to salads, desserts, and drinks. The peeled roots are edible as well. The seeds can be made into a mustard substitute.

First year plants form a low basal rosette of leaves, and flower and set seed in their second year. The flowers come out very early, providing important food for pollinators, notable syrphid flies whose larvae eat aphids. When flowering they stand about 4-5 feet tall.

Money plant grows well in part shade or full sun, making it an excellent multi-purpose vegetable for the forest garden. Money plant is not picky about soil. It is drought tolerant, and will self seed if allowed. 

Growing Instructions

Direct sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring, or start in flats or pots. Space plants 1-2 feet apart. Plants will bloom in their second year.

Shipping in Canada 

We ship seeds in Canada via regular letter mail, which is an untracked service, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. Larger bulbs and plants are sent via tracked flat rate box.


Shipping to the US

We ship all US orders by tracked packet and they usually take two weeks to arrive.

According to the USDA, most seeds require an import permit to be brought into the US and the permit is free and useable for multiple orders/years. The package will list the contents as "Garden Seeds". In our experience shipping seeds over several years, most small orders will make it across the border without issues, but occasionally they will be held at US Customs. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required import permit and Cicada Seeds will not be responsible for any orders held or confiscated by US customs.
