Oklahoma’s state flower story is a little confusing.
Oklahoma was one of the first states to adopt a state flower when it enthroned mistletoe. Like Maine’s pine cone, it isn’t really a flower, of course.
Perhaps that’s why Oklahoma legislators later made some revisions. Oklahoma’s state flower is now the Oklahoma tea rose, with the Indian blanket serving as the official wildflower.
The mistletoe is still on the roster, but it is now the official “floral emblem.”
