OMGodess! 10 Stems of Iris for $10

Bring home this month's Fresh Ten special - 10 iris for $10 - and bring home a piece of Greek mythology.

That's right, Iris was the Greek goddess who brought messages from heaved down to earth using the arc of the rainbow. Her connection to heaven even inspired med to plant irises over the graves of women to guide the dead in their journey.

Irises are also the symbol of royalty in several countries, including France, Egypt and Japan. (Just look closely at the Fleur-de-Lis; it's an iris!) Their beauty even inspired the works of the great Vincent Van Gogh.

Stop by any Cactus Flower for your iris bunch: a flower fit for a king, a goddess, and YOU!
