Folio 34v, Honesty or Money plant (Lunaria annua), is a hairy-stemmed plant found throughout Europe. It is a member of the mustard family with a creeping rhyzome, erect stem, purple flowers with four petals, and pointed, coarsely serrated, oval leaves. The plant develops flat, round seed pods that turn a silvery, paper-like texture in the autumn; hence the common name money plant.
