INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State officials say nearly 25 Indiana stores have pulled their stocks of boxwood shrubs following the discovery of a fungal blight that can kill the plants.

"Soil don't get no respect," Rodney Dangerfield might have said (but didn't). Perhaps you know your state bird or flower, but do you know your state soil?
