The National Plants of Canada

The official symbol for Canada is the leaf of the national tree, the maple tree, whose leaf can be seen embossed on the Canadian flag. The maple leaf has been used as the national symbol for Canada since the early 18th century and is represented on many important Canadian national emblems, such as the flag, the penny and the coat of arms.

The white Trillium is the floral emblem of Ontario. This plant grows freely in the forest and woodlands. It has three white, waxy petals protruding from each flower, and is highly protected.
