A Yellow Iris: "To bind my love"

The Greek goddess, Iris, the messenger of love is the name given these flowers. They are thought of as the symbols of communication, wisdom, faith, and valor. Greek men often planted irises on the graves of their beloved wives and daughters as a tribute to Iris, whose duty it was to lead the souls of women to the Elysian fields.
