Great card!  Thank you!
  To see the identification of each of the flowers shown on the card, click on "Skip to End," then "To see your State Flower click here."  A list of the states will come up.  Click on a state and the flower's picture will come up WITH its identification.
  You were right, Lee:  Our national flower is the Rose.  A partial list of national emblems (including animals, people, etc. as well as plants) for other countries can be found here: (Australian states/territories)… (Canadian provinces)

Very nice.

Speaking of state flowers, I assume that we and other countries have 
national flowers as well. (And do each of the Australian states have 
state flowers as well? What about provincial flowers for countries 
like Canada or South Africa? Do other nations have different flowers 
for each national subdivision--like each country in the UK?)

What are the ones for those on the list? (For example, I don't know 
what the USA national flower is, although I suspect it's the rose.)
Are any of them geophytes? They went by too fast in the presentation 
for me to identify them all, but for example, it looked like Utah's 
state flower is a Calochortus species.
