Official State Flower of Alaska
Alaska adopted the wild native alpine forget-me-not as the state flower in 1917. Alpine forget-me-nots belong to one of the few plant families that display true blue flowers. All State Flowers
The wild native alpine forget-me-not (Myosotis alpestris), grows well throughout Alaska in open, rocky places high in the mountains. You will see the diminutive alpine forget-me-not in midsummer, and perhaps one of several other varieties in Alaska (such as mountain forget-me-nots and splendid forget-me-nots).
