Yellow and Blue Roses...
October 30, 2006 3:47am CST
do they exist? I have told my other half that I have seen yellow roses and he doesn't believe me. I also remember as a very young girl seeing blue roses but I have never ever seen one since and am starting to think I must have made it up. Has anyone else seen yellow and/or blue roses and if so where?

Blue Roses just do not exist, commercially speaking that is, however the first blue rose is on it's way as it has been grown by a bunch of mad Australian and Japanese Scientists. The lucky blighters have discovered the (holy grail of the rose world!) ( http://www.csiro.au/csiro/content/file/pf1v,,.html ) So, until they are available to order (another 3-7 years we estimate) you will just have to make do with our specially selected white roses that are cut immaturely from the plant and cultivated in blue dye solution so that the blue can grow into the petals as well as the leaves and stems.

Wow! You know your stuff huh? So are you basically saying that anyone who has seen a blue rose has not actually seen a real blue rose but an artificially coloured one?! What about the other coloured roses? What is the original rose colour then? I am intrigued!!! Thanks for your response!

Thank you very much for your response and I don't blame you for not thinking blue roses exist. I thought I must have dreamt it until I posted the question on here and others have said that they exist. I haven't seen any since I was a little girl but I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for them - just to show my husband and prove I am not mad if nothing else!!

blue roses exists! i love them and i have seen blue roses. Holland Tulips shop sells blue roses for around Php260 each... i think some blue roses are artificially colored, while others, blue pigment chemicals have been added/introduced to the rose while it's still young or growing...
