Iris Flower Patterns: Amoenas and Neglectas

By KentPfeiffer
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.

Ditto what Paul and Mona said! I will have to refer to it often until I get the descriptions memorized Green Grin! as well as for gazing at the beautiful blooms! So far, I have noted that I am drawn to a lot of Blyth and Ghio blooms, your photos just confirmed it! And how is it possible to actually have an all time favorite?! Hilarious!

I love the photos-but it breaks my heart every time I find new varieties that grab me because I don't have space for them all! And it seems that some come and go so quickly that they become very hard to find after a few years. But, thanks for the eye candy. There are a few more in there that I HAVE to add to my list...
