The National Plants of the United States of America

United States of America

The rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the United States of America in 1986. The rose has been around for about 35 million years and grows naturally throughout North America. Roses are red, pink, white, or yellow and can have a wonderfully rich aroma. The rose is a symbol of love and beauty, and yet also of war and politics, the world over. Each of the 50 states has also adopted an official state flower, including the rose in New York, the Oklahoma rose in Oklahoma, the Cherokee rose in Georgia, and the wild prairie rose in Iowa and North Dakota.

America has some of the grandest trees on earth – the largest, the oldest, and some of the most magnificent. In 2004 the oak tree was designated as the official national tree of the United States of America. Each state also recognizes an official tree symbol. More than 60 species of oak grow in the United States, which makes it our most widespread hardwood tree. The oak is cherished for its beauty, abundant shade, and top-quality lumber. Senator Nelson said: “It is a fine choice to represent our nation’s strength, as it grows from just an acorn into a powerful entity whose many branches continue to strengthen and reach skyward with every passing year.”
