Vermont State Flower
Adopted on February 1, 1895.
No. 159 of the Acts of 1894, effective February 1, 1895, designated the Red Clover, Trifolium pratense, as the official State Flower. Both an integral part of many a cultivated hay field and a common sight along numerous Vermont roadsides, the Red Clover is symbolic of Vermont's scenic countryside generally and of its dairy farms in particular. Oddly enough, however, Trifolium pratense is not a native of Vermont but was "naturalized" from Europe.
