The National Plants of the United Kingdom

 

As befits a nation that is divided into several smaller countries, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has a varying range of national flowers. The Tudor rose, also known as an English rose, is a traditional emblem of England and takes its name and origins from the Tudor dynasty, which ruled England and Wales between 1485 and 1603. The shamrock, a three-leafed old white clover, is an unofficial symbol of Northern Ireland. It is said to
bring good luck and is commonly used as a badge for
sports teams, state organisations, and Irish troops abroad. The thistle, a prickly-leaved purple flower, is the national flower of Scotland and is featured in many Scottish symbols and logos. Thistle was first used in the 15th century as a symbol of defense. The yellow daffodil serves as the national flower of Wales where it is traditional to wear a daffodil when celebrating Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, on the first March each year.
