Did You Know?
Iris means Eloquence.
Purchase while the flower is just starting to open; warm conditions hastens opening of flowers.
Iris tends to make a statement on their own as the colour speaks volumes. Blue is quite rare in the world of flowers so the Iris is popular for this reason, plus it is very pleasing to the eye and lasts well. Adding Irises to an arrangement of mixed flowers always works well eg: yellow roses, Babies Breath and Irises – wow!
mainly blue with yellow ‘throat’ white and yellow are sometimes available.
