Plants with “Daniel” in the name

Q: Are there any plants with the name Daniel in them? Our children are named Daniel and Heather. We’ve always had heather plants but we’d like to find a plant for Daniel.

A: Using Google, I only found ‘Daniel Ost’ rose but my Facebook Fans came through! Anne H. suggests ‘Daniel Deronda’ clematis; Andrea P. found ‘Daniel Boone’ daylily; Allison H. discovered ‘Daniel’ peace lily; Sarah B. heard about ‘Daniel’ apricot and both Carmen N. and Jana R. propose ‘Daniel Weeks’ hardy ginger. But Marion S.’s husband generously says you can have all the “daniel-ions” you like from his garden.
