This month's trivia question is: what titles of tunes can you think of that Django played (or are common in our repertoire) that have flower or plant names in them? Just like last month, let's make sure the name of the flower or plant is whole in the title, and not just part of another word. (ex.--let's not include Rosetta, even though it has the word rose in it). I've come up with 6. I'll post them (as well as the ones I haven't thought of that the forum posts) after you all have taken a crack at it. Have fun with it.

    "Honeysuckle Rose" is a twofer. "Rose Room" is another. Those are bound to be on your list. Maybe not "Fleur d'ennui?" It has the word flower in it, but I don't think there is such a plant that exists.

    For some more modern ones, this one might not be "common in the repetoire", but I I always remember Hono introducing it as the name of his daughter (after the flower name). "Mimosa."

    Also, Stochelo did a cover of Santana's "Moonflower."

    Fleur de Lavande (Fapy) - not so common though

    I can pull out 8 since we're including both flowers and plants:

    • Honeysuckle rose
    • Rose room
    • Daphne
    • Nymphéas
    • Fleur d’ennui
    • Apple honey (Does an apple count as a plant?)
    • Tarragone - Django on banjo

    I had to browse the tracklist from the Intégrale collection but I figure there are probably more! Is tea a plant? if so then how about "tea for two".

    Nice Billy. Honeysuckle Rose, Rose Room, Mimosa & Fleur d'Ennui are 4 of my original 6.

    Well done, mac63000. You got Daphne, which is #5 of my original 6. Also 4 additions, I think Tea For Two is fair game.
