The iris is a truly unique flower that inspires eloquence and humility. With subtly elegant sword-like blooms that come in a variety of colours, it is a flower that can stand alone as a cut bouquet or as a feature of a mixed bouquet. The most popular version of the iris are the blue and purple, desired for the vibrancy of the petals and the rich, velvety colour. At 1300 FLOWERS we have included the iris in many of our fresh and modern designs, including one of our most popular, the Jessica.
