Sioux City officials name a new "city flower"

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Sioux City has a new "city flower."

The Compass flower will take the place of our old flower, the Petunia.

The Compass flower is a native species, and is able to survive for over 100 years. It was used by the pioneers as a compass, as the leaves grow north to south.

City officials say with it's bright yellow color, and with the potential to grow high, the compass flower will represent Sioux City well.

On March 25th, city council will be asked to name the Compass Flower the new official flower.
