Issues :-
1) placement of prepositional phrase "of Indiana" next to what it modifies - ' the ceremonial state flowers'
2) Neither and either are preferred with SINGULAR verb, so IS is correct.

A The ceremonial state flowers are of Indiana, the peony, and of Vermont, the red clover, but neither are
Both modifier and verb issue

Correct
