How about:
"Crown Imperial" (fritillaria imperialis) -dramatic flowering plants - zones 5-9.
"Starfighter" Oriental Lily zones 3-8
I'm sure I saw a plant called Darth Vader - but I cannot remember if it was an iris, a tulip, or...?

Found it - but it's an orchid. It's called Dark Stars Darth Vader. I also saw a Coleus named Darth Vader.

For some reason I thought of Persicaria "Lance Corporal".

I suppose he would be more excited about 'Enterprise' roses (as in "Star Trek") than 'Scarlett O'Hara' roses.

lol - yes wendy - i suppose you are right! but at least this topic has him *thinking* about the garden instead of saying the "oh, they all look the same to me" comment when i ask about it.

thanks for all the suggestions everyone! keep em coming if you have any - i did the search here on garden web AND on line but haven't had much luck narrowing it down to plant names anywhere -all i get are fan sites about star wars and such......

I just stumbled onto this subject. My DH and I are HUGE Star Wars fans! Even my screen name is from SW. I was watching HGTV one Saturday recently and I swear Paul James said he had a Viburnum that was called "Jedi". Anyone heard of it? Frizzle, if you are still on this forum, how has your husband gotten on with his great idea of a Star Wars garden? My husband's ears perked up when I read him this post. Thanks for any ideas or names/types of plants!
