FLORIDA STATE FLOWER - ORANGE BLOSSOM



The orange blossom was designated State Flower by Concurrent Resolution Nov. 15, 1909 Legislature. It is one of the most fragrant flowers in Florida. Millions of these white flowers perfume the atmosphere throughout central and south Florida during orange blossom time.

NSW- Australia
Waratah - Hardy medium shrub, grows at higher altitudes in rocky soil. Beautiful deep red, waxy flowers form at the end of each branch. The flower is like a symetrical cone made up of rows of waxy fingers. They keep well as cut flowers. They are superb.
If I had a bunch of them now I'd give them to Adam Clayton.....and then faint

Michigan
State Flower: Apple Blossom
In 1897 Michigan legislators, feeling that "a refined sentiment" called for the naming of a state flower, designated the apple blossom. Joint Resolution 10 of that year noted "one of the most fragrant and beautiful flowered species of apple, the pyrus coronaria, is native to our state." Legislators also proudly declared that "Michigan apples have gained a worldwide reputation." A century later, Michigan ranks second in the nation in apple production.
