Somewhere, there is a publication that tells all about our state 'things' - I
don't know the details on the iris, but it has been the state flower forever.
 Wouldn't surprise me if it dates back to the early 1800s.  More recently, we
have gained state rocks, wildflowers, etc etc.  Enough to fill a small book!
 And I am pretty sure that we have several state flowers now - the iris is
the oldest official state flower though.  I will donate this publication to
our local library this Christmas and let you know.
