New Hampshire's State Flower "Lilac", Wildflower "Pink Lady Slipper"

Purple Lilac

Pink Lady Slipper

How lucky we are to live in a state where Lilacs grow. New Hampshire adopted the Purple Lilac as our state flower in 1919. Spring is the time of year when the radiant fragrance of the lilacs grace our yards. Lilacs come in white, violet, blue, lilac, pink, red, and purple, grow best in full sun.

Did you know New Hampshire has a state wildflower, Pink Lady Slipper "Cypripedium acaule" you will find growing in the acid soils of pine/oak woods.
