  New Jersey indigenous flowers

There are different types of indigenous flowers in the state of New Jersey. However, it does have only one state flower: the common meadow violet, scientifically named “viola sororia”.

Although the status of this New Jersey indigenous flower as a state symbol was first officially declared in 1913, the resolution which brought about this declaration lost effectiveness in 1914. After only one year in the position, Viola Sororia was thrust out into the cold of uncertainty where it stayed for nearly fifty years.

In 1971, new legislation finally returned this New Jersey indigenous flower to its rightful place as a state symbol.

Cultivating this indigenous flower in New Jersey is pretty easy. It actually grows well in lawns and other cultivated areas, making some people treat it as a weed. This means that if you want to plant this, you might want to make sure and prevent seeds from scattering into your neighbor’s lawn. The plant also grows in meadows, woods and some areas where waste has accumulated. If you want to spot it, it would be easier when it is blooming, since the blue-purple flowers are quite distinctive.

The blooming season of this New Jersey indigenous flower is from April to June. You’ll have three months in a year when you can have an easy time spotting these plants and enjoying their blossoms.

It has a height of 3-8 inches, which means that you’ll have to look down in order to appreciate its beauty. You might also like to consider planting this New Jersey indigenous flower in plant boxes in order to elevate it and better expose its beauty.

If you are attempting to locate the plant in the wild during the non-blooming seasons, you might want to look for some of its identifying marks. One of the most recognizable marks of this New Jersey indigenous flower is the presence of heart-shaped leaves. The leaves are also hairless and may have rounded teeth along their edges.

When planting this New Jersey indigenous flower, you really shouldn’t expect pure purple-blue blossoms. Actually, it is pretty common for violets to have white or partly-white flowers. The blossoms also commonly have 5 petals, with two petals positioned laterally near the base.

If you plan to cultivate this New Jersey indigenous flower, it prefers to partly-shaded conditions. If you plan to put it where full sunlight reaches the plant, you might want to increase the amount of moisture it receives.

Something interesting to note is that the flowers and young leaves of this New Jersey indigenous flower are edible and are sometimes added to salads. However, the taste is rather bland, which doesn’t quite make it ideal for eating, unless you are going for visual impact.  By Oahu Wedding florist at http://alohaislandweddings.com
