It was interesting trying to track down information about Tennessee's state flower. I never could pin down exactly which iris was the right one, and finally found a rather confusing excerpt from a book (State Botanical Symbols by Alan McPherson) that gives a quote from the act declaring the iris as the state flower:

"The iris, family Iridaceae, is designated as the state cultivated flower."

No official genus, species, variety, or even color were specified, although it was just taken for granted that purple iris was implied. Since several sites I checked showed photos of Dutch iris, I guess Virginia can be forgiven for this one. Even more interesting is the fact that Tennessee now has two official state wildflowers and one state cultivated flower, due to some conflicting legislation over the years!

LOL! You mean they didn't call to discuss the location clue? What were they thinking?

All of these states surround Georgia, almost as if they are forming a frame around Atlanta, so maybe the clue is more specific than it seems.

Here's another perspective:

Camellia - Alabama state flower (Japanese camellia)
Orange blossom - Florida state flower
American dogwood - North Carolina state flower (even though the image is the wrong species)
Carolina jessamine - South Carolina state flower
Iris - Tennessee state cultivated flower (Dutch iris)

Could be a clue to the South being the location of the next UO.

Okay, now I'm thinking those citrusy flowers really are citrus because of the fused sepals (the middle part), so maybe a California location is still in the running (unless we are going back to Florida!).

After more searching, I think the citrusy-looking white flowers are orange jessamine (Murraya paniculata).

Oops, I think what I thought was a magnolia is actually jasmine, another southern garden flower.
