New York State Flower
The rose was designated the New York State Flower in 1955. The legislature’s proclamation was broad and included roses of any color. There are plenty of beautiful roses growing all over the state, especially in the Hudson Valley region. Many historical estates with formal rose gardens are open to the public. Among the most popular are Kykuit, home to four generations of Rockefellers, and the Vanderbilt Mansion, one of the area’s oldest Hudson River estates.
Rose bushes are relatively easy to grow. There’s a rose for virtually every climate and horticultural condition. It’s no wonder the rose is considered the most popular flower in the world. In 1986 the rose was also adopted as the floral emblem of the United States.
