Georgia State Flower
The above photograph shows three stages in the flowering of a Cherokee Rose. At left center is an unopened bud; at top is a recently opened bloom; and at bottom is a mature bloom.
The Cherokee Rose became Georgia's official
state "floral emblem" by virtue of a joint
resolution of the General Assembly approved by Gov. Nathaniel
Harris on Aug. 18, 1916.
