Did you know we do not have a national flower? There is a petition to the government of Canada to name a national flower; a flower that naturally occurs/grows in every province and territory. The Master Gardeners of Ontario created an online poll to choose such a flower.
80% of respondents favoured one plant! The winner, as selected in the poll, is bunchberry (Cornus Canadensis), a 4 inch understory plant with white flowers, red berries and red leaves in the fall. The Toronto Master Gardeners are petitioning the government to instate the bunchberry as Canada’s national flower.
