Blue rose cannot be grown naturally, at least not yet. Nature has it that roses, lack the particular pigmentation that is needed to produce the colour blue. As such, alternative methods have been thought of to “create” a blue rose.

For years, florists all over have searched for a true blue rose, but to no avail. The quest for the absolute blue rose has been compared to the Christian hunt for the Holy Grail. As such, the blue rose is considered to be the Holy Grail of the rose world.

This mysteriously vague quality of blue roses is accentuated by the fact that blue roses that we have today aren’t real. Their existence is purely fabricated, and this makes them even more mysterious and even creates a sense of surrealism.
In short, blue roses can symbolize an appreciation for all things enigmatic
