Lenden are the intelligent extraterrestrial plant species that appear in Colin Harvey's "Displacement," a short story in his collection Displacement. Approximately 108 million members of the species arrived in a fleet of 9000 sublight speed spacecraft, with 850 spacecraft orbiting near Earth. Called by the pejorative "Cabbages" by some characters in the novel, Lenden may temporarily morph into human form as Homo Flora Sapiens.
