Garden Tuesday ~ The Money Plant

Money Plant

This is called the money plant because those seed pods, when dried, resemble coins.  It spreads like make and we it in white and purple.  Mr. Sidewalkshoes pulls it up like it’s a weed.  But after reading some feng shui books, I have questioned this.  I mean it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that perhaps you should not be pulling up money plants and discarding them.

ALSO, happy birthday to Mr. Sidewalkshoes!!!  He is 4 years older than me, but for one short week in May, he is 5 years older than me.  I love this week.

Please join me for Garden Tuesday.

    Pam, I have such fond memories of the Money Plant (my grandmother called Silver Dollars.) She gave me the seeds many, many years ago, and I look forward to them blooming every Spring. I think of her. She had them blooming in Ohio all around her foundation of the house.

    Happy birthday, Mr. Sidewalkshoes.

    When we lived in Maryland, money plant grew all over the place in our backyard. The flowers were pretty, but we were always pulling it up because it did spread like wildfire. I wish we could have bought gas and groceries with it.
