    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.

    You can influence the government in their selection by participating in this petition: https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-1179

    If you happen to have bunchberry growing in your garden or near you in the wild, please feel free to share your photos here. Thanks!
