  indigenous flower Rhode Island

Rhode Island is known for being the smallest state in the Union. However, it does have its own identity to be proud of. One of the signs of this pride is the fact that it has a state flower: the violet. This Rhode Island indigenous flower is immortalized in the famous poem opener: “roses are red, violets are blue There is just so much that one can say about this family of flowers.

First of all, there is actually no specific specie named when the violet was chosen to be Rhode Island’s state flower. The different varieties of this indigenous flower from Rhode Island should therefore be considered. Typically, violets are blue. However, the science of genetics has been able to produce varieties that might just make poets search frantically for different rhyme patterns.

Most species of this Rhode Island indigenous flower have heart-shaped, scalloped leaves. They are also commonly herbaceous. This means the leaves of the plant dies at the end of the growing season. Usually, the blossoms of this Rhode Island indigenous flower bloom from the months of April to June. Of course, this still depends on the specific specie in question.

The blossoms are usually composed of 5 petals. There are some types of violets where the flowers are clustered, while some have one flower on one stalk. Again, this depends on the specie being referred to. The colors, as mentioned before, vary. Some species still sport the usual purple-blue coloring, while other varieties have been bred to produce red or even multi-colored blossoms.

One weird thing that some people notice about the blossoms of this indigenous flower from Rhode Island is the fact that the smell seems elusive, almost mysterious. Some people feel that the flower merely gives an illusion or a memory of a scent, giving a sense of dejavu. Actually, this is because of the fact that the chemical make-up of the scent of violets includes the component ionone, which acts as a numbing agent for nasal receptors.

There are many reasons why people cultivate this particular Rhode Island indigenous flower. First of all: it is actually edible. Many people use it for salads. It actually tastes pretty bland; however, it does add a nice aroma. A popular way of preparing violets is candying them. The blossoms are coated in caramelized sugar. This makes for a tasty, aromatic dessert.

The leaves, the roots and flowers of this Rhode Island indigenous flower are also very rich in Vitamins C and A. Because of this, many have derived various concoctions using the violet. In Chinese herbal medicine, violets are often used in teas and infusions.

Of course, this indigenous flower of Rhode Island is also prized for its scent. It is often made into perfumes. Truly, the violet is a small flower that holds a lot of potential.
