Q- Which state's official flower isn't actually a flower?
A- Maine.


The official flower of Maine is the eastern white pine cone and tassel, which is of course a cone that bears seeds, and certainly not a flower.
State symbols tend to reflect the culture and values, and in some cases, these act as an ode to the flora and fauna. Most states have an official flower, which is native to the region. On the other hand, there are also some instances where a non-native flower is picked owing to its beauty or symbolism. In addition to this, there are a few states that also have an official wildflower.

Violet seems to be the most favored of them all, with four states designating it as their official flower. Do you know which states these are? You'll find the answers as you scroll.
