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[1]. 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.

This is one rose in a larger bouquet of cream colored flowers. I suppose it’s really a white rose, but to me it looks like cream.
