"Official plant of Tucson?" Top 5 Page for this destination Tucson Local Custom Tip by matcrazy1

Tucson Local Customs: 31 reviews and 24 photos

by matcrazy1

Saguaro cactus is an official flower of Arizona.

It seems that each USA state has its own official flower, bird and... what else? Btw I love that idea - I just think which bird and flower could it be in Poland :-).
Shouldn't be these beautiful palms as you can see on my picture official plant of Tucson? Any other ideas?

From my friend Nat:(b1bob):
That depends on each state. Some just have a motto, flower, and bird. Others have the motto, flower and bird plus fish, insects, and even an official snack (Illinois: popcorn).
Thank you Nat.
