The Carolinas were among the first dozen states formed in the U.S., named in honor of England's King Charles I. Separate governors were appointed for NC and SC in 1712. Lush flora abounds in this region; South Carolina is aptly nicknamed the Palmetto state, with the Carolina Yellow Jessamine (or Jasmine, as many still refer to it) as its state flower.
North Carolina is nicknamed the "Old North State" (but better known as the Tarheels), and its state flower is the Flowering Dogwood.
