Children as plants

I am collecting plants named after my sons. I have an Isaac rose (Mme Isaac Pereire), a Reuben blackberry and I need a Sam (or Samuel). Any suggestions?

We should make a list of as many names as we can think of and the plants (I say we - I don't know any so I'll be taking advantage more than contributing!)

I have a rose called "Alec's red" in honour of a dear family friend who loved roses,
as my late in-laws didn't have 'plant names' I just planted forget-me-nots..
