Iris Flower Patterns: Amoenas and NeglectasIris Flower Patterns: Amoenas and Neglectas
By KentPfeiffer on April 19, 2013

Irises are named after the Greek goddess of the rainbow. It's a fitting name because iris flowers can be found in almost any color of the spectrum. If that didn't provide enough variety, they also come in an amazing array of patterns. Amoenas and neglectas have been my favorite flower patterns since my childhood.
