Juneau chooses primrose as its official flower

Posted: Tuesday, June 24, 2003

JUNEAU (AP) Alaska's capital now has an official flower.

Juneau's municipal assembly on Monday night picked the primrose as its official flower.

Assembly member Jeannie Johnson said there has been a great deal of support for the primrose. The spring flowers thrive in Juneau's moist, mild climate.

The Juneau Garden Club and Master Gardeners lead the effort and told assembly members they had found an indigenous variety of primrose on Mount Roberts, which overlooks the city.

A resolution approved by the assembly asks the state to name Juneau as Alaska's primrose capital.
