history of the iris

The long, elegant stems of the Iris and its complex, mosaic blooms gives it an aura of unique and charmed tranquility.  An iris has six petals–the 3 outer petals are called “falls” which drop away from the center, and the 3 upright inner petals are called “standards.”  This exquisite form has given the iris a rich history of meaning.

Women's Day is dedicated to celebrating women and honoring their achievements by expressing our respect, appreciation, and love. The earliest Women’s Day observance was held on February 28, 1909, in New York in remembrance of the International Ladies Garment Worker’s Union Strike a year prior.  As years passed, and women’s rights further advanced, Women’s Day became solidified as an international holiday on March 8th. Today, it stands as a great opportunity to honor and respect the woman in our lives.
