The Iris is named after the Greek goddess of the rainbow. The flower occurs in almost all colours of the rainbow. The Iris is best known for its many beautiful shades of blue, a colour that you don't see very often in cut flowers. But also in white, yellow, purple or bicoloured you will find the exuberant Iris. In Greek mythology, the goddess Iris was a messenger between gods and people. If you give someone Irises, that means 'I have a message for you'.
