Here we reprise Mississippi's other state flower, the magnolia. As with the coreopsis, they didn't pick a specific species. But among Mississippi magnolias, it pretty much goes without saying. On the other hand, Mississippi flower lovers (or maybe just lovers) are fortunate to have a variety of southern Magnolias. And coreopsis. There are six magnolia species, and a dozen coreopsis.
Did we get to Mississippi in a hurry? That's because Maryland's black-eyed Susan, Michigan's apple and dwarf lake iris, and Minnesota's showy ladyslipper have already appeared as daily postings.
