Do you want to see a true blue rose?

A true blue rose - They say that a blue rose means a mystery and that it also symbolizes the impossible and the unattainable.

I haven't seen a blue rose, not even sure if it could really exist. They say that true blue roses do not occur in nature. Blue roses were at first created by dyeing white roses. There were genetically engineered roses to have the color blue, but still looks purple and not true blue. I'd love to see a true blue rose and take pictures of it. It would be a great experience seeing one because that rose would be the rarest of the roses. Would you like to see one?

Is that so! I didn't know that true blue roses do not exist. I thought they exist because there was one time I saw the flowers in Baguio City being featured in one magazine TV show. Then they visited a place in Benguet where roses were harvested and all color of roses were there and I saw blue ones. Maybe it is what you say not true blue but purple but I thought those were blue really! I was really fascinated to see those beautiful flowers being harvested locally when I thought they could only come from abroad. The colors of those flowers are orginal and not painted like the ones I am seeing here in our town market which are obviously just painted.

Hello maam. From what I read, true blue roses do not really exist. Yes, maybe the purple ones were considered blue, closer I guess to blue-violet.

Hello my friend djoyce71 Ji, Well, to be true, I too have not seen, but heard about it, people talking at Agriculture University, even I witnessed many times Flower shows in my country at Lal-Bagh Garden, but never saw physically. Why it is so significant. I under unstand anything rare would be rare effective. May god bless you and have a great time.
