State Flowers For The US

 

It would be pretty awesome to represent our home states in the garden. Every state has a state flower to help represent it.

I have been lucky in my life to have visited all fifty states. Not by flying in and out but by driving through them.

It would be a fun thought to plant the state flower for each state we have visited. Don’t think it would be practical in my size garden, there would be no room for my vegetables.

Here is a list of the state flowers for each state.

 

  • Alabama: Camellia. This flower is originally from Asia and is known for its grace.
