Indiana

Indiana has had four different plants as the state flower in its history, including the Carnation, the Tulip Tree Flower and the Zinnia. The state’s most recent choice, adopted in 1957, the Peony, thrives here in southern Indiana.

Even though I have been in Indiana for 27 years now, I live very close to Kentucky, across the Ohio River from Louisville.

Hi, The peony is so pretty and full! That is a beautiful view of Louisville. It's been many years since I've visited, but I remember you live in a pretty place. We have rain/thunder currently. I hope you will have a good evening. Love you.

Karen, I love peonies...even though I do not have any growing in our yard. They are so pretty and smell good too. I like your view of Louisville. Blessings , xoxo, Susie

Nice view! And the peony is such a beautiful flower. Wisconsin's state flower is the wood violet. It probably won't be changed because it's everywhere. And although it is certainly beautiful, it is not a good idea to include it in your garden because it spreads like crazy. That's a good thing, if it can be confined. :-) Enjoy your beautiful peonies! - Judy

Both shots are beautiful ones. I love the peony and all its color and shapes.

Peony is one of my absolute favorites. I have three peony bushes and I always look forward to seeing them pop up out of the ground in the spring n bloom the most gorgeous blooms.

my favorite of those flowers is the peony and I have never seen one growing, only in a vase... I did not know you were so close to KY. I love that state, but I lived in the southeast corner.. think Harlan and Hazard and Pineville

Nice flower. In my language it is called: Pioenroos

Indiana knows how to choose beautiful flowers. I love peonies and have two new plants in my garden. I am hoping for the best and that I'll have lots of nice flowers next year.
