hoary alyssum seed pods

rice creek regional trail, saint paul, minnesota

  • Kathleen says:

    Very lovely. I remember calling it ‘money plant’ when I was young. I never knew its proper name.

    not sure this actually is lunaria
    i have lunaria in my backyard garden and it doesn’t have this shape or size of “coins”. It could be another relative in the mustard family.

      Margie, you are right. It is hoary alyssum. All I needed was “mustard family” to get to the right source. Thanks again!

    • still says:

      Margie, do you know what it is? I couldn’t identify it. I picked it roadside, hence “roadsidia”.

  • margie says:

    sorry i didn’t even read your description
    it is lupinus seed pods

    reply
    • still says:

      Thank you! I was coming up blank trying to identify it. The fuzziness had me thinking nettles leaves…not seed pods. I am thrilled to know the name! And it makes so much sense since the Gunflint trail in northern Minnesota is abundant in wild lupines. Thanks so much Margie!
