Since the first flower blossomed around 130 million years ago, life on earth hasn’t been the same. From livening up our landscapes to giving us pungent perfumes, it seems like there are a thousand and one uses for these beautiful blooms.

But perhaps one of the best things about flowers isn’t what they do, but what they can signify. For most of us, a red rose given to a sweetheart suggests amorous intentions. A bouquet of daffodils in February signals that spring is just around the corner.

With so much meaning in every blossom, it’s no surprise that states also use the power of flowers to represent themselves. But which flower stands for which state?
