I thought it’d be fun for us to talk about some plants that are significant to your area. Feel free to talk about something that represents something as big as your country, or something as small as your city/town!
For example, I’m Canadian and we definitely have some unique plants that represent us. The poppy is a flower that we use to represent remembrance for the wars. We all pin them over our hearts during the month of November, and that’s our way of saying thank you for those who gave their lives.
We also identify the maple leaf, from the maple tree, as our national symbol. The leaf is on our flag, and pretty much used everywhere as an icon of being Canadian
What about you guys? What plants are significant to where you live?
