Winter Bouquet Choices–The Iris

Beautiful and elegant, the Iris has over 200 varieties in a wide array of colors so it’s fitting that this gorgeous flower takes it’s name from the greek word for rainbow. They can be found in virtually every part of the world, growing both naturally and in a flower farm environment. The most popular types found as cut flowers are the blue, white and yellow.

Depending on the color, the Iris can convey all sorts of different meanings, from the blue which stand for faith and hope to the yellow that symbolize passion. White Iris represent purity and the flower itself expresses admiration, making it a perfect choice as a Valentine’s floral arrangement as well as for any Valentine bride.  The delicate and lacy blooms create beautiful and romantic bouquets.

Iris come in many forms and two distinct types, bearded and non bearded. The Bearded Iris varieties include Miniature Dwarf, Dwarf, Intermediate, Border Miniature Tall and Tall. The Non-Bearded Iris varieties include Siberian, Japanese, Louisiana, Dutch, Yellow Flag and Blue Flag.
