Song and Plants

Song and Plants starts with the songs about plants and then elaborates with images, video and a podcast. Below are the links to each tune and all accompanying conversations, descriptions and imagery!

As a prelude to the tunes, these two episodes explore the concept, describe some terminology and offer a few fun examples of scientific wit (and eccentricities)!


Once upon a time in a squash flower....

The evolutionary dance between Peponapis pruinosa (squash bee) and Cucurbita pepo (squash) has entwined the two species. Now they have a love song (and nine podcast episodes)!

Botanical Berceuse

The tune is a lullaby of sedative herbs. The video shows the plants as they are sung and the podcast episodes tell their stories.


Amaranthaceae is a delicious and nutritious family. The song highlights five familiar species and the video features their beauty. The podcast episodes will persuade you to welcome these plants into your garden and onto your dinner plate!

Vegetable Canon

A canon for vegetables! Thus far it is a lonely, slightly haunting lament...but podcast episodes are beginning to amass describing the featured garden treats!
