I have great bushes of Lunaria but I cannot figure out the proper time to harvest the branches for drying. Do I wait for the seeds or the seed pods to get brown? Do I let them just start to brown or turn completly brown? Something I read said to wait for the coppery color? I am very confused. help please.

Lunaria (also know as: Honesty, Honesty Plant, Money Plant, Satin-flower, Moonwort)

Let the seed pod completely develop (i.e. turn brown). Then you remove the outer brown, husk-like membrane revealing the satiny, silver lined, flat pod. You can actually pick it earlier but removal of the outer membrane is much more difficult 'peeling'.

Good luck.
