The Blue Rose - Blue rose - Netflix

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 portrayed in literature and art as symbols of love, prosperity, or immortality. 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.

Since blue roses do not exist in nature, as roses lack the specific gene that has the ability to produce a “true blue” color, blue roses are traditionally created by dyeing white roses. In a book entitled Kitab al-felahah written by Ibn al-‘Awwām al-Ishbīlī in Arabic in the 12th century, and translated into French by J. J. Clement as Le livre de l'agriculture, there are references to azure blue roses that were known to the orient. These blue roses were made by placing a blue dye into the bark of the roots.
