Plants with military associations

Please can anyone suggest Plants with military associations? These could include plants with something military in the name such as Fuschia Army Nurse. Thank you.

    Maybe Lady Godiva is not exactly military, but the girl sure had chutzpah. How about rose Jeanne d'Arc, Or Chapeau de Napoleon?

    ..a Clematis I used to grow, and want to obtain again, is 'Souvenir du Capitaine Thuilleaux'....

    ...introduced in 1918 and bred by Monsieur Thuilleaux in memory of his son, who was killed in action in WW1....

    ...I like a plant with history...

    I can remember back in the sixties my mum having a red/pink HT rose called General MacArthur. I think some people used to call Gallinsoga - "Gallant Soldiers" - due to mis-hearing the name.
