As long ago as 1890, the rose was working its way into the hearts of New York schoolchildren when they voted for their preference for state flower on Arbor Day of that year. First place went to the goldenrod, second place to the rose and third place to the daisy.

A year later, another poll was held. On Arbor Day 1891 the selection was limited to the previous year's top two finishers, the goldenrod and the rose. Over 500,000 votes were cast. This time, the rose came out on top.

New York did not take official action regarding a state flower until 1955 however when, on April 20, the rose was adopted as "the official flower of the state in any color or combination of colors common to it."
