The May Flower, also known as the American Pasque Flower, is a native prairie flower most often found in the Northern part of the United States. It is considered to be the first sign of spring because it blooms at the beginning of March and can be found peeking out from the snow. It is also a good gift to give new mothers as it represents new birth and renewal. It was also used for hundreds of years by Native Americans as a treatment of eye diseases, like cataracts. Finally, it is the state flower for South Dakota, Minnesota, and Vermont.
