Thematic Plants Trivia Questions

1. "Moss" was an album released by Mike Gordon in 2010, his third solo album. Mike Gordon was the bass player for Phish, a band formed in Vermont in 1983. What genre of music was "Moss"?

From Quiz
Moss Only Grows on the North Side of This Quiz

Answer: Rock

Mike Gordon was a founding member of the rock band Phish when he was a student at the University of Vermont. He answered an ad for a bass player that the other three members of the band had posted around the campus and they started to jam together. When the band had a brief hiatus, Mike Gordon embarked on a solo project and recorded some music independently. His genre was similar to the band, very rock with funk and bluegrass influences. His first solo album was "Inside In" which was released in 2003 and was well-received as "a weird and accessible mix." In 2010, Gordon released his third album, "Moss," which was not as well-reviewed, but still established Gordon as "as an inventive but easygoing artist."

2. What is the name of the French town where Claude Monet's house, with its famous waterlily pond, is located?

From Quiz Water Lilies

Answer: Giverny

Giverny is a village on the right bank of the Seine River, in the French department of Eure, 80 km (50 mi) northwest of Paris. Famed Impressionist painter Claude Monet settled there in 1883, eventually buying the house where he had moved with his family. The lily pond for which the gardens are famous was created in 1893; Monet dedicated most of the following 20 years to painting the pond, its pretty Japanese bridge and the waterlilies, producing a series of about 250 paintings. In 1966, Monet's son Michel left the property to the Académie des Beaux-Arts before dying in a car crash; in 1980, the house and gardens became a museum. Monet's "Water Lilies" can be admired in many of the world's major art collections. All the incorrect answers are places associated with Impressionist or Post-Impressionist painters: Renoir (Guernsey, which is a dependency of the British Crown), Seurat (Asnières) and Van Gogh (both Arles and Asnières).

3. Animals: The grass carp, sometimes called an Amur carp, originated in Asia but was brought to North America for what reason?

From Quiz The Grass Type

Answer: To control water weeds

North America, particularly the United States in 1963, started introducing the Amur carp to control the overabundance of aquatic weeds growing in its waterways. Because it would eat the weeds, the Amur carp began to be called the grass carp. The species is considered among the most bioefficient ways to control aquatic weed growth.

4. What song by alt-rock band Goo Goo Dolls was one of the biggest hits on the late 1990s after its inclusion on the soundtrack for the film "City of Angels"?

From Quiz Daisy, Daisy, Give Me Your Answer Do

Answer: Iris

"Iris", despite being the band's tenth single appearing on charts in 1998, was the one that shot the John Rzeznik-fronted Goo Goo Dolls to fame. First appearing on the official soundtrack for the Nicolas Cage/Meg Ryan film "City of Angels", it later appeared on their "Dizzy Up the Girl" album in the same year, an album which also launched the singles "Slide", "Black Balloon", and "Broadway", all of which were major hits. The single reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100, but topped four other Billboard charts, becoming one of the most famous songs of the decade in North America. The iris is a garden flower known for appearing in a wide array of vibrant colours.

5. "We want...a shrubbery!" The "Knights who say Ni" appear in which very popular "Monty Python" film?

From Quiz Bring Us a Shrubbery!

Answer: The Holy Grail

"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" was released in 1975 and was the first full-length feature film by the British comedy group Monty Python. It is a comedic take on the legend of King Arthur and the quest for the Holy Grail. Despite its low budget, it is regarded by many as one of the best comedy films ever made. The Knights who say Ni were the keepers of the sacred words "Ni, Peng and Neee-Wom", and those who heard the words "seldom lived to tell the tale". They demanded King Arthur and Sir Bedevere give them a "sacrifice", which turned out to be... "A shrubbery!" Luckily enough, the pair came across Roger the Shrubber, who gave them a shrubbery, and they then gave the Knights the shrubbery in return. Unfortunately, as much as they loved the shrubbery (and its laurels), they had changed their name to the Knights who say "Ekke Ekke Ekke Ekke Ptangya Ziiinngggg!", and demanded another shrubbery and that they cut down a tree with a herring. Turns out, they could escape just by saying "it", which is a word they cannot hear for one reason or another. What a strange movie! The other options were also Monty Python films with the exception of the "Flying Circus", which was their television show.

6. This song hit No. 1 in the U.K. charts in December 1966. Who had a huge hit with the song, "The Green Green Grass of Home"?

From Quiz Grass : Questions Linked to the Green Stuff

Answer: Tom Jones

7. Sometimes a garden is far from perfect. What colour do the Queen's guards paint the roses in the film version of "Alice in Wonderland" (1951)?

From Quiz Down the Garden Path

Answer: Red

Hinting at the artificiality of the Queen's government, Alice enters the garden to discover that the guards, all in the form of playing cards, are painting rose bushes from white to red, a colour characteristic of her suit (hearts). Coincidentally, in Lewis Carroll's children's novel, the gardeners are in the suit of 'spades'. In both the film and Carroll's second story, "Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There", Alice also visits gardens of talking flowers. The Disney version shows the garden of talking flowers singing "All in the Golden Afternoon".

8. Flowers are colourful for one basic reason- attracting insects for pollination. There are many methods of pollination. What is pollination by wind called?

From Quiz A Brief History of Thyme

Hawking is the victim of a neurological condition that has rendered him almost totally paralyzed. His book is a model of lucidity and intellectual daring.

11. In 1455, a civil war began in England. Two different royal families were fighting for the throne. What is this conflict now called?

From Quiz Flower Power

Answer: The Wars of the Roses

The dispute ended in 1485 when Henry Tudor, related to the Lancaster House, defeated King Richard III at Bosworth Field.

14. Irish moss is the name a Jamaican drink that uses sweetened milk along with various spices such as cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, as well as something called "Irish moss". What is this briny "Irish moss" that is boiled into the drink?

From Quiz Moss Only Grows on the North Side of This Quiz

Answer: Red algae

In Jamaica, Irish moss is a drink that incorporates sweetened milk along with spices like cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and this is mixed with a variety of red algae called "Irish moss" by the local population. The red algae, more commonly known as Gracilaria, is boiled into the drink and it gives it a thicker consistency as well as adds protein. The Gracilaria is known as "Irish moss" because Jamaicans believe that Irish workers brought over the moss; however, other stories believe that it was so named because the algae is red and many Irish people have red hair.

15. Nine red, heart-shaped waterlily pads appear on the coat of arms of which Northern European country - a kingdom whose capital is home to one of the world's oldest amusement parks?

From Quiz Water Lilies

Answer: Denmark

The stylized leaf of a water lily, called "Seeblatt" ("lake leaf" in German; plural form is "Seeblätter"), is used as a heraldic charge in Germany, The Netherlands and Scandinavia. Besides the Danish coat of arms, these emblems - usually red in colour, and similar to hearts in appearance - appear on the flag of the Dutch province of Friesland (Frisia), and on some Danish coins. On the Danish coat of arms, three Seeblätter accompany each of the three blue crowned lions depicted on the first and fourth quarter of the shield. Estonia's coat of arms also bears three blue lions, but no lily pads. The amusement park referenced in the question is Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark's national capital.

From Quiz Daisy, Daisy, Give Me Your Answer Do

Answer: "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare

Perhaps one of the most famous literary romances of all time, "Romeo and Juliet" tells the story of two lovers pining to be with each other, but marred by their warring families in the city of Verona, Italy. Amongst one of Shakespeare's most well-known, oft-quoted tragic plays, "Romeo and Juliet" is also one of the most heavily adapted. The quote comes at one of the most memorable scenes in Act II, during which Juliet says the "O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?" line. Roses, of course, are a symbol of love.

29. To which Biblical figure did God speak via a burning bush in Exodus?

From Quiz Bring Us a Shrubbery!

Answer: Moses

This story can be found in Exodus 3:1-25. An angel of God, communicating through a burning bush, told Moses that he was to go to the Pharaoh of Egypt and tell him to let the people of Israel go. Of course, the Pharaoh did not oblige, and thus followed the famous story of the ten plagues of Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea and the 40 years in the desert before reaching the Promised Land... Moses, one of the most important Christian, Islamic and Jewish figures, was the son of Amram and Jochebed, but was raised by the Pharaoh's daughter after the Pharaoh had ordered the death of all Hebrew children. His mother sent him down the Nile River in a bulrush craft, and the Pharaoh's daughter found him. He is also famous for receiving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. According to many, he was also the author of the Torah (the first five books of the Jewish Bible).

30. What is the name of the 2005 film set in Kenya which won a then-pregnant Rachel Weisz her first Oscar?

From Quiz Down the Garden Path

Answer: The Constant Gardener

"The Constant Gardener", directed by Fernando Meirelles (known for "City of God" and "Blindness"), was nominated for four Academy Awards at the 2006 ceremonies. Set in Kenya, the movie follows an activist and a diplomat who discovers that his wife has been killed. As the movie unfolds, more mysteries put the protagonist, played by Ralph Fiennes, between himself and the truth. The gardening aspect of the film comes from Fiennes' character whose hobby involves cultivating gardens. Weisz won her first Oscar (in the 'Best Supporting Actress' field) and the Golden Globe in the same year. The film was nominated for ten BAFTA Awards.
