Birth Month Flower of February - The Iris

Birth Month Flower of February - The Iris
iris flower

The Iris is named after Iris, the Greek goddess of rainbows who also acted as a messenger to the gods in Homer's The Iliad, and it has long been used as a symbol of royalty. People often think the Fleur de Lis symbol is a stylized version of a lily, because the word "lis" in french means lily, but many scholars believe that the Iris is the inspiration for the Fleur de Lis symbol. The Iris also has many practical purposes. It's roots have a long history of use in herbal medicine, and native Americans used the fibers from the outer edges of the leaves to make strong ropes and fishing nets. Irises come in a wide variety of beautiful colors, but the ones most commonly used in floral arrangements come in Blues, Purples, Yellows and whites.




What Our Customers Are Saying:

* It was Quick, easy, and lots of option to choose from.


* I first used 1st in Flowers several years ago and would send Christmas arrangements to my mum in England I am in the USA. I never had any problem and she was always thrilled with her gift. When I had a relative who turned 70 last week I was looking to send her flowers and after looking at several websites I returned to 1st in Flowers because of selection, price and the fact that I knew they delivered on time and I have never had any problems.


* I usually use Interflora but was tempted away to this web site and found the whole experience very pleasing and easy.
