“It gets its nickname from an ancient Chinese story about a poor farmer that prayed to the Gods for wealth and fortune, only to later stumble upon a plant growing in his field. The farmer couldn’t fathom the beauty of the plant, so he began to grow more of them for others to appreciate. Quickly he became one of the wealthiest men in the area through the sales of the plant.”

I always thought it was called a money plant because when it has gone to seed, the pods look like silver coins blowing in the wind.

Wishing you all a Happy Mother’s Day! May you see some pretty wildflowers somewhere in your day.
