The Iris flower, known as the most persistent perennial of all plants, has come to its existence since the Ancient Greece period. With over 200 species that bloom in a spectrum of colours, the genus Iris is found widely in the Northern Hemisphere zones and its habitat includes swamps, deserts and rocky, mountainous areas. Tracing back to its history, the Iris flower was believed to be associated with the Greek Goddess of Rainbow who once performed her role as a messenger of love. The Iris flower slowly gained its popularity later during the Middle Ages and was recognized as the national emblem of the French Monarchy, which is known as the Fluer-de-lis today.
With its striking uniqueness and beauty, many have encouraged the cultivation of the stunningly beautiful Iris flower, as it blossoms gracefully in either bright blue, purple, pink or yellow colour during early to mid-summer. As much as they were primarily seen in the gardens and in the wilds, the Iris flowers were also largely used in the making of perfumes and medicinal remedies during the earlier years. In the agricultural industry, the Iris plant is grown by the farmers as it helps aid in the water purification process.
Due to the great ornamental values that the flower carries, the Iris flower has always been a favourite choice of many for an array of gift giving occasions in many parts of the world. The blue and purple Iris can denote royalty, whereas the yellow Iris symbolises passion. A bouquet of Iris may also express courage and admiration.
