In Greek, iris translates to the word “rainbow” in reference to the goddess named Iris who traveled along rainbows between heaven and earth to deliver messages for the gods. During the Middle Ages, the iris became linked to the French monarchy, eventually being recognized as their national symbol, the fleur-de-lis. In Japanese culture, the iris is referred to as the “purple butterfly” and the “dancing spirit of early summer.” Filled with rich meaning, the iris has been known to symbolize faith, hope, courage, wisdom and admiration. The combination of its striking display of colors and symbolism makes the iris a popular bloom to celebrate everything from weddings and birthdays, to anniversaries, baby showers and more.

These delicate blooms have a short vase life, but with extra TLC, you can help keep them looking their best for as long as possible. Follow these easy steps:

When you receive your irises, cut the stems underwater at an angle to help rehydrate them and be sure to nourish them with floral food.

Trim away any leaves that fall below the water line to prevent the growth of bacteria and be sure to trim and add fresh water every three days.

Keep them in a cool location, away from heat, direct sunlight and drafts.
