Alabama State Flower
The camellia, also known as “the rose of winter,” was designated the official Alabama State Flower in 1959. Goldenrod was dethroned after more than 30 years because it was deemed by some to be a weed. Thankfully, not everyone agrees with this assessment. Kentucky and Nebraska proudly hail goldenrod as their official state flower. South Carolina has honored the tall yellow bloom as its official state wildflower.
Alabama also recognizes an official state wildflower, the oak-leaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia Bartr).
