Since January, Sweden's national flower has been on the rise. Ten of Sweden's most beautiful flowers are taking part in the final round. Which is your favourite?

On 12 March, Sweden's national flower will be chosen, and the winner will be crowned on 13 March. I'm late to the party and have actually completely missed this initiative, but now I too have voted. You can vote here.

The initiators of the vote are Swedish Botanical Society, an association founded in 1907 and today has 2200 members who work for increased knowledge and protection of wild plants in Sweden.
