- My name is Nicole Paape. I am a junior
of North Dakota majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry. I
will hopefully be a dentist in 6 years! The reason why I had
this flower was that when I'm driving in my car in the summer, I have
noticed how beautiful this flower was and I wanted to know exactly
the flower came from and what the storyis behind it! I was
that it was so wide spread across the United States and it was also the
Maryland state flower.
