Iris | Artificial Flowers
The iris has a distinctively shaped blossom of three inner petals and three outer petals that open widely from a spear shaped bud and sword like foliage. Silk iris are an excellent line flower, used frequently in contemporary and Asian styled artificial flowers designs and may also be used for emphasis and accent.
Did you know? In some languages, irises are called flags or sword flags, relating them to symbols of heraldry and royalty. In Japan the shape is seen to express heroism and the blue colour refers to blue blood, so irises play a key role in their Spring festival for boys.
