Transcript of To Kill a Mockingbird: Plants

Collards: page 69 "Don't make a sound," he whispered. "Don't get in a row of collards whatever you do, they'll wake the dead." Plants Pecan Trees: page 11 "The Maycomb school grounds adjoined the back of the Radley lot; from the Radley chickenyard the tall pecan trees shook their fruit into the schoolyard, but the nuts lay untouched by the children; Radley pecans would kill you." Chinaberry Trees: page 9 "Routine contentment was: improving our treehouse that rested between giant twin chinaberry trees in the backyard..." Kudzu: page 68 "At first we saw nothing but a kudzu-covered front porch, but a closer inspection revealed an arc of water descending from the leaves and splashing in the yellow circle of the streetlight, some ten feet from source to earth, it seemed to us." To Kill a Mockingbird: Azaleas: page 55 "Jem and I had always enjoyed the free run of Miss Maudie's yard if we kept out of her azaleas..." Carya illioensis, or pecan trees, are a species of the hickory tree, generally thriving in warm, dry areas. The flowers produced by the trees are wind pollinated and the seeds of the trees, pecans, are a warm and buttery edible nut. The Melia azedarach, also known as the chinaberry tree, is a species of the mahogany tree. It has long leaves as well as small fragrant flowers, which are snow white or lavender in color. It also bears small berries, hence the name "chinaberry." These berries are eaten frequently by birds, but are toxic to humans. Rhododendron periclymenoides, or pink azaleas, are flowering shrubs which flourish in the spring and live comfortably in the shade. Their bright colored flowers are very pretty to look at, but the nectar contained inside is highly toxic. Pueraria lobata, or kudzu, is an asian arrowroot, native to southern Japan and southeastern China. It is a climbing vine which coils and twirls around objects it touches. Though it is edible, many homeowners spray the weed with herbicides. Brassica oleracea, or collards, are a loose-leafed, all-year plant grown for their large, dark, edible leaves. Collards taste similar to kale and spring greens, and are used often in culinary arts. Created by: Molly Smullen, Emily Swett, and Matthew Canovas Thanks
