How are Blue Roses Made?

Mother Nature doesn’t make a lot of flowers in blue. There are some light blue shades (hydrangea, delphinium, etc) but most lean towards a shade of purple. Flowers species, like people, have specific “genes” that make them what they are. Sadly, roses lack the specific gene that has the ability to produce “blue”. So, the blue roses of today are created with human intervention.

Emotional Healing of Flowers

Flowers have long been known to provide emotional healing. In fact, there are a number of Harvard studies confirming same. During 2020, flowers have taken up the challenge of spreading lightness, emotional hugs and overall feelings of "we miss you and are thinking of you". We especially notice the increase of flowers being sent to our seniors in isolation. When you just can't be there in person, flowers will express your message to your loved one.
