Flower of the Day – Blue Rose
This is a beautiful blue rose under a glass dome.
The label says:
Vermeille blossoms are produced by using a gentle processing of real flowers. Early in the morning when the flowers open in natural perfection, selected quality roses are cut from the plant. After using a sophisticated procedure the flowers become long-lasting beauty that look as fresh and natural as the moment it was cut in our fields.
And from an article I was reading about blue roses:
A blue rose is a flower of the genus Rosa (family Rosaceae) that presents blue-to-violet pigmentation instead of the more common red, white, or yellow. Blue roses are often used to symbolise secret or unattainable love. However, because of genetic limitations, they do not exist in nature. In 2004, researchers used genetic modification to create roses that contain the blue pigment delphinidin.
So-called “blue roses” have been bred by conventional hybridization methods, but the results, such as “Blue Moon”, are more accurately described as lilac in color.
