Dgreetings Fragrance Flowers Rose Flower Blue Rose Flower

If someone asks you to close your eyes for a second and think of any flower in the world, which flower will come to your mind at that instant? Most probably a rose, as the rose is the most popular flower in the world. A rose has been a part of legends, folklore, history and the common man's life story for centuries. The color red is almost unanimous with the image of a rose however modern technology is trying to change that concept in today's world.

A blue rose flower is supposedly the 'holy grail' of rose flowers. Everyone talks about it, but no one has actually seen it. Well, this is because in nature, a blue rose flower does not exist. Roses have been in existence for the past 5000 years. Roses have bloomed in nature since ancient times in all colors except blue. Red roses, pink roses, yellow, orange, peach and even deep red roses which give the illusion of black have been around all these years.
  • The reason for the lack of a natural blue rose flower is that roses lack a pigment called delphinidin. This plant pigment is responsible for giving flowers the color blue. To create a blue rose flower the red pigment of the flower has to be modified and reduced. Then a pathway for the blue pigment has to be created. If this is done successfully, a unique blue rose flower can be achieved.

    After more than a decade of research, two companies have achieved the impossible. They have managed to create a real blue rose flower! One is a Japanese company called Suntory and the other is an Australian company called Florigene. They created the world's first blue rose using genetic engineering.

    Traditionally blue roses symbolize 'attaining the impossible' and they have always been shrouded in mystery. A blue rose tattoo symbolizes impossibility, fascination and fantasy. All this was because the blue rose flower did not exist at all... until now.
