OT (sort of) - Plants with 'green' in their name

I'm working on a project where I have to name things with certain colors in the name. I'm trying to theme it with plants, but I can't come up with anything green. Which is odd being that most plants actually are green!

Examples: Blue salvia, mock orange, purple heart.

Any ideas for green?

So, you are not looking for cultivar names? Heuchera americana 'Green Spice' is one of my favorites.

Green and Gold - Chrysogonum virginianum
Green Ash - Fraxinus pennsylvanica
Green hawthorn - Crataegus viridis (also Phlox viridis and several others)
Greenbrier - Smilax

Thanks Esh. I knew there had to be some out there.

Jeff_al - I actually have to do the same thing with edibles and already have green beans. And I used Fried Green Tomatoes for my movie category! :-)
