The Naming of Flower Groups

It seems to me that many of the other group names are wonderfully eccentric, yet true, descriptors of the subject, I do wonder how they arose & became accepted, but I'm eternally thankful that they did. So, in that vein, & without much thought, how about a competition of snowdrops, or a declination of lilies, a perk of pansies or an erection of eremurus? Or if that offends, a titillation of tulips? Perhaps a lush of lilacs or a snake of arisaemias, a miasma of orchids, a sunshade of escholtzia, a sniff of datura or, maybe, Bruggmansia. Etc. Your turn.
