|While you may be most familiar with blue iris flowers, the iris comes in a large variety of types and colors. The name itself is derived from the Greek word for "rainbow." While they are found in such a wide variation of colors in the wild, when you buy flowers online, irises will most likely be found in vivid shades of blue, white, or yellow.
The predominant quality that is associated with irises is purity. This meaning is especially poignant when you buy flowers online from us, because our irises are grown under Veriflora certified standards in Northern California. Their meaning has grown to include faith, hope, and wisdom. In many places, the purple and dark blue iris flowers are considered to represent royalty. The yellow is thought of as representing passion. Two other general meanings for irises are admiration and courage.
Also known as fleur-de-lis, these flowers are deeply associated with Isis, the Greek goddess who acted as a messenger between the gods and a link between heaven and earth. They are also a symbol of Hera, the Greek moon goddess. In the past they were planted at a woman's final resting place as a way of reminding Isis to guide her in her journey beyond death. They were revered in Egypt, and they became the national symbol of France. Originally they were used for perfumes and medicinal purposes.
When you send flowers, irises are perfect for birthdays, corporate gifts, get well, sympathy, thinking of you, and just because.
