StatNisland Flower - Dandelion per RS Charles Evans Cron ron.evans@usa.xerox.com I see Dandelion's every where I go. Nothing S.I. about them. Most of the world considers them a nuisance. The cattail is a weed (underbrush), widely used to control leach fields and road snot. If we name a weed as our flower it will be seen as "that contrary group on the island's flower. This is not to discourage those people's fondness for weeds but there are weeds and there are flowers. The SI weed is OK, or the SI underbrush is OK but the SI flower should not be a weed or underbrush. How about a big sign over St George saying under a picture of dandelions and cattails "Weed really like you to stop by and see our gardens"
