I was given a new tee shirt for Mother's Day along with a lovely punched tin planter containing a pansy that is blooming it's heart out!
But forgive me for being ignorant of state flowers...I know I could do a search, but since this board is full of members from MO, I just thought I would post the pic and ask,:o
What is it???:confused:

I can't id that flower, but dogwood is the state flower.

The dogwood is the Missouri state TREE. The Missouri state FLOWER is the white hawthorn blossom, Crataegus mollis.
I'm not sure what the flowers on the T-shirt are called, but they are in the compositae family and grow in partial shade.

Oops. That could be hawthorn on the shirt. The leaves are close to the one that grows in my yard. Bunch of differently shaped leaves on the different hawthorns.

My tee shirt could just be an example of Artistic licence perhaps ;)

Blue, that is always a distinct possibility in this world of "artistic humans" we live in!:cool:
How come you got a MISSOURI t-shirt for mother's Day?;)

And it ain't even Mother's Day yet. :rolleyes:
MY DIL just happened to see it at a preowned clothing store. It's in primo condition and when's the last time you saw a souvenir shirt for under $2?? People will think I've actually been to MO...........:D Oh wait. I HAVE, LOL

The flowers are real species of plants: I have actually seen them growing. So they're not just artistic licence.

Okay, look what I found looking up Hawthorn trees....
Something else for the Poultry theme garden

Too bad they don't picture it in bloom. Cockspur is the type I think I have in my yard.

Next time George is by with his camera, ask him to take a pic.

I have hawthorne and it is white only. Tell your dil she is my kind of shopper!
I love a bargain

There is the hawthorne tree (Crataegus oxyacantha) common in western Canada, and the hawthorne bush (Crataegus mollis), which is the hawthorne of Missouri.
