Flowers of Athene

Does anyone know which, if any, flowers are sacred to Athene, or connected to Her?

I don't believe there is any flowers connected to Athena, the closest thing I can think of is the Olive tree but no flowering plants.

I know of Olive trees, cypress, and ivy, none of which I am aware of flowering?

Olive trees produce an abundance of small, yellowish-white flowers. The ground around olive trees is covered with them in the late spring.

The goddess' symbolic color is pale or grey-blue – flowers of such colors would be particularly appropriate offerings.
