Canada’s National Flower – Bunchberry was the choice …but it won’t be official.

The Master Gardeners of Ontario launched a search for a Canadian flower that appears in every province and territory, and is not already a provincial or territorial emblem. You voted for Bunchberry. Our petition to have it adopted as our national flower was rejected, however, we can certainly recommend this little gem as a great plant to grow in gardens across the country.
