Photo Contest
The purple lilac is New Hampshire's official State Flower as determined by the Legislature and signed into law in 1919. It may be seen throughout our State on private and public lands having been planted by many generations of citizens. It is believed that the first New Hampshire lilac planting was in 1750 at the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion in Portsmouth. Beautiful and fragrant blossoms in a wide range of colors appear in every May.
