Lunaria annua, Honesty or Money Plant
Brassicaceae or Mustard Family

Plant Erect herb.  Flowers purple, with four petals, often grouped in two's.  Leaves of three kinds, roundish heart-shaped basal leaves, a pair of long heart-shaped leaves halfway up the stem, and smaller oval leaves, not opposite each other, on the upper stem.  All leaves are coarsely toothed.  Fruit is a flat round pod, resembling a large coin.

A common garden annual, sometimes escaping into the wild, and occasionally seen in Wildwood.

The purple flowers, coin-like fruits and odd bunch of leaves easily identify this plant.  In gardens you will sometimes see a similar perennial plant also called honesty (Lunaria rediviva).
