Iris Flower Care
The delicate blooms of the lovely iris flower have a relatively short vase life. However, with a little extra TLC, you can help keep them looking their best for as long as possible. Upon your iris flowers’ arrival, cut the stems under lukewarm water at an angle. This helps to rehydrate them after their long journey from our farm. Also, be sure to nourish them with floral food. Before placing them in water, it will be necessary to trim away any leaves that fall below the water line to prevent the growth of bacteria. Be sure to trim and add fresh water every three days. Keep them in a cool location, away from heat, direct sunlight and drafts.
