Thank you, I was going to comment the same thing. Their natural range is part of Arizona, part of Sonora, Mexico, and just a tiny bit of SE California. Such fascinating plants.

Swedish flag for MN? And what does basketball have to do with Indiana? My mind jumped to MA, being where it was invented.

Minnesota Vikings perhaps? Well known NFL team, I believe there's some Swedish history/references there.

Google tells me that Minnesota has the largest Swedish population in the US. Which admittedly is the only reason I got that answer.

I, too, was confused by Swedish flag in MN. Being a Hoosier, I do understand that our reputation for basketball hysteria justifiably is fading between IU not winning a banner since the 80s and AAU-ification of the pre-college game.

Yep, Mayo Clinic. And we do have lots of Swedes in MN. I recall going to a Davis Cup match in Minneapolis in 1991 between Sweden and the USA; there was a TON of Swedish support. Really fun matches too with Sampras, Courier, and Agassi coached by McEnroe vs. Stefan Edberg, Anders Jarryd, etc. from Sweden.

So Eutychus's comment must have been deleted since I don't see anything related to Maryland. The lacrosse thing threw me off too; not sure the significance, but it's not a sport I follow.

I picked it up because of crab cakes and the terrapins. Was the native tribe that first played lacrosse from Maryland? Or does that emoji have some other significance? I thought it came from tribes further north.
edit: nevermind. I read the other comments.
