Nature names? But not just any nature names!

My favourite girls name at the moment is Saffron but before I make a definite decision I wanted some suggestions for other nature names that I might like but I have stricter criteria than just any nature names:

Actual nouns NOT names that just have some sort of nature link/meaning

NOT very popular nature names e.g. Lily, Ruby, Poppy, Daisy, Summer, Jasmine, Rosie, Holly, Brooke, Amber, Willow, Skye,

NOT trendy/hipster old lady nature names e.g. Ivy, Violet, Clementine, Hazel, Iris

NOT waaay out there names e.g. Rainbow, Sunflower

I'm thinking something along the lines of Fern, Autumn, Coral but I don't like any of those enough to use!

Not that I can think of any off the top of my head, but there are some lovely Latin plan names. Would that be an option?

I always fancied Robinia as a girl's name (sounds posh, I think grin)
