Are you familiar with Lunaria (aka money plant, honesty, or silver dollars)? If you’re looking for a neutral material to add interest and movement to an arrangement or bouquet, the papery membrane of the Lunaria pod with its beautiful silvery sheen may be a good choice. And a couple of bonuses – it’s long lasting and available year-round. Use it in a monobotanical design or mix with with dried/fresh flowers. If you’re feeling particularly creative, incorporate Lunaria into a larger structure or suspended design. We’re awe-struck by Solabee Flowers who wove it into a stunning curtain used as a ceremony backdrop (pictured below).
