At Joybird we’re huge fans of houseplants, they give that splash of green to our living spaces bringing them alive and also offer a host of benefits including reducing dust levels and purifying the air.
When it comes to houseplants, there’s a lot to choose from, and we were interested in which houseplants you’re all buying and what the most popular houseplants are across the country. To find this out we looked at Google Trends search data to see which houseplants states are searching for the most from the aloe plant to tiny succulents.
Aloe there! Overall the aloe plant is America’s favorite house plant with a whopping 11 states searching for this plant the most. Slithering into second place is the snake plant with it’s fantastic snake patterned leaves. Although succulents seem to be everywhere at the moment (and we have no problem with this as we love them) they are only the third most popular houseplant in America with 5 states searching for these plants the most.
Alongside houseplants, we are also big fans of flowers (honestly who isn’t?) and we enjoyed looking into these popular houseplants so much so that we thought we’d also look into state flowers to see if each states individual state flower is actually their most popular with some interesting results.
When it comes to state flowers it’s a varied mix but the Rose comes out on top with this being the most popular state flower in 8 states. Coming in second is the festive mistletoe, maybe Delaware, Georgia, Maine, and Wisconsin looking to sneak kisses in all year long.
Interestingly it seems a lot of states are adopting other states flowers as their favorite with New York’s Rose being the favorite in Connecticut, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.
So there you have it, the aloe plant is America’s favorite and the romantic rose still captures the most hearts. Whichever houseplant you chose for your living space you’ll be sure that it will bring your space alive whether it’s resting on an end table or on a shelf, just remember to water it now and again!
