Flower Of The Week

20 Feb

This week’s flower is:

Iris


Iris is an intricate looking flower with 3 inner petals and 3 outer petals. They can be blue, purple, white, or yellow. We usually have the blue or purple variety here at the shop. Iris come to us tight in a bud (like in the picture below) they open when they are left at room temperature. When they are fully open you can see the 6 distinct petals.

Iris has many different meanings including:
Inspiration
A message for you
Faith
Wisdom & Valor
Hope
Good Luck gift for a man
Emblem of a Warrior
Your friendship means so much to me
My Compliments

Iris is the birth flower for February are also associated with the 25th wedding anniversary.
