Okay Kathy, I definitely say it is Dame's Rocket, especially because of the seeds. Thanks for the clarification!! Here are some white ones near by:

See what you think, James! According to what I read, Dame's Rocket has long, thin seed pods whereas Money Plant has flat, round pods that when rubbed open, make silvery disks that are quite decorative. If the plants you found were growing wild, I rather think they were Dame's Rocket, as the Silver Dollar or Money Plant is more often found in gardens. The leaves are also somewhat different.

Dame's Rocket or Hesperis


Silver Dollar Plant or Lunaria

Thank you everyone, so much, for all of the kind words!! Thank you Kathy for the correction. I wonder which it is. These are growing wild, and there are some white colored, and a more light purple, as well, in the same area.

Lovely flowers, James, but this is not phlox, which has five petals. This is either Dame's Rocket or Silver Dollar Plant (Money Plant), both of which have similar purple flowers with four petals like this.

Nicely composed, James.
I am surprised to see that MI is so far ahead of southern NH. I would not have guessed that your climate is warmer than ours.

8/2015: Greetings from Michigan, where we get quite a wide variety of weather changes throughout the four seasons! Originally I found this site, for the weather, and the photos kept drawing my interest! Decided to get my first digital camera in 2010, and have since upgraded to a Nikon P530. Truly an amazing, eye-opening hobby! This is a great community, so many excellent photographers and friends, so little time! I do read and appreciate every comment and email that I receive! I would like to thank everyone who contributes, for all of the great inspiration and feedback! Sometime down the road I would still like to get a DSLR camera, but for now I just hope to send a small view of life from the Great Lakes State. Home of the University of Michigan Wolverines! Go Blue! -James
