Sagebrush flowers are discoided individually with 3 to 8 flowers each head. The big sagebrush blooms in late summer through out the fall season.
The state flower that represents the state of Nevada is the Artemisia tridentate commonly known as the sagebrush blossom. The indigenous sagebrush flower was first adopted as Nevada’s state emblem on March 20, 1917 by a General Assembly concurred by the Senate. Later, it was officially adopted as the state emblem by a legislative act in 1959. Sagebrush was finally adopted and declared as the official State Flower of Nevada in 1967.
Sagebrush blossoms known for the pleasant aroma are small in size that usually appears in yellow and white colors.
