Vermont State Flower

Red Clover
Trifolium pratense

No. 159 of the Acts of 1894, effective February 1, 1895, designatedthe Red Clover as the official State Flower. Both an integral part of manya cultivated hay field and a common sight along numerous Vermont roadsides,the Red Clover is symbolic of Vermont’s scenic countryside generally and ofits dairy farms in particular. Oddly enough, however, Trifoliumpratense is not a native of Vermont but was “naturalized” from Europe.
