Oklahoma State Flower
The Oklahoma rose is the official state flower of Oklahoma. It was officially adopted in 2004. Before the Oklahoma rose was selected as the state flower of Oklahoma, the Mistletoe (phoradendron serotinum) was the state floral emblem. It’s the oldest of Oklahoma’s symbols, adopted in 1893 — 14 years before statehood.
The Oklahoma rose is a tea rose. It’s quite fragrant and deep, dark red, nearly black velvet. It produces double blooms and up to 50 petals per flower.
