This is one of my favourite fragranced flowers I have in my house; if you ever have the chance to get one, jump on it. The walking apostle plant or iris is also known as the poor man’s orchid or one day iris (Neomarica gracilis); it smells like heaven but each flower lasts for less than 24 hours (it is reminiscent of roses or Turkish delight). 246 more words
