See The World's First (Nearly) Blue Rose


This fall the first blue roses will go on sale in the U.S. and Canada. Roses can’t produce blue pigments, so every blue rose you’ve ever seen was actually a dyed white rose. But after 20 years of research, a Japanese company has developed a genetically modified that’s the closest true blue rose yet. They’re great if you want to spend an exorbitant amount on roses that everyone else thinks are just purple.
