*

Maine's state "flower" - botanically, the white pine cone and tassel are not considered flowers since gymnosperms do not have true flowers. The reproductive structures of pines are known as strobili. You could accurately state that Maine is the only state to have an official state strobilae.

**

Oklahoma's state "flower" - mistletoe is a plant, not a flower (it does bear true flowers, but they are not showy).
