These flowers were for a memorial and a burial. The event was on a Wednesday so the flowers couldn't be ordered the week before because we were advised the Iris does not last in bloom that long. Receiving the flowers on a Tuesday for a Wednesday event did not allow enough time for these blossoms to open. We followed the instructions to force the blooms but 24 hours was not long enough. More than half didn't open by the event. We even went on You Tube to get additional ideas to force an opening, but the blooms were cut too deeply into the bud stage and not nearer the opening stage.
