Punning Author Names and Book Titles, Plant Style

It might not be Friday — and indeed, Friday might feel miles away — but why not take a mid-week break and enjoy a handful of excellent author name and book title puns, as seen through the names of various plant species.

Naturally, we’re going to link you to various plants throughout the post as well. Because why not? (There’s a nice plant sale going on on Amazon, y’all, and I know how much we all love some great indoor greenery).

Name of the plant is below, and obviously not one of the punned author names. Unless you want it to be. How great would these plants look in your reading nook?
