Book with a Plant Name in Title?

Mine is The Catcher in the Rye.

But there's White Oleander and I Never Promised You a Rose Garden and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

If ever you have the opportunity, read "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint Exupery. There is no plant in the name, but the whole story is about a rose. At first the book seems trite, but after some thought you will understand why it's often used in philosophy classes. What seems to be a children's book is a very thought provoking read. BTW it is a short book & can be read in one or two sittings. I have read it at least 20 times & I get more out of it each time. I think you can guess it's my favorite book. ;o)

I will accept Flowers for Algernon if you will take the song Oh Sweet Pea (won't you dance with me) I think that is how it goes.

How about the song "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" It was an old song I believe popular in the 1920's and revived by Tiny Tim singing it on the Johnny Carson Show! Everyone remember? LOL Also one of my favorite books is "Sleeping With A Sunflower". Right now I can"t locate it to give you the author's name but believe she also wrote "Tomatoes Like Garlic".........right this minute I'm not sure about that.

Thyme of Death, Rosemary Remembered, Bloodroot, etc.

I enjoyed the 'Shy Tulip Murders' by Rebecca Rothenberg. I bought it just for the name, off a dicount table.
