I prefer buying flowers on the street but since my girlfriend is studying abroad, it was not quite possible. No regrets though! Payment and delivery went without any problems and delivered flowers (Blue Dendrobium) looked exactly the same as the ones pictured on the website. I also appreciated order tracking service including information about estimated delivery time. Not always I write reviews but I have to give credit where it's due.
PS: Just an advice for non-british people: Don't use diacritic in the greeting card text - it will be replaced by weird symbols.
My friend, Miranda, lives in Hurstpierpoint so I looked online for local florists. She has her own jewellery business which utilises bright colours so on viewing the Serenata options I thought the Blue Dendrobium would appeal to her.
And they most certainly did, she was very very happy with them, quote "they are absolutely stunning".
Also a reasonable price. And as far as I know the delivery went fine.
Fantastic service as always from Serenata flowers. So glad to see you have the Blue Dendrobiums back in stock as they are such stunning flowers. The flowers were delivered next day and in excellent condition and they looked just as good at the picture on your website. My friend was overjoyed. I also love the fact that you offer discounts throughout the year for new and existing customers. I will definitely continue to purchase from you.
Good selection at decent prices. My Dad loved his flowers for Father's Day, and both parents have appreciated receiving them in bud form so they can watch them bloom.
I think this order was delivered by DPD, which seems to be a good choice so far.
My previous order of blue dendrobium orchids flowered for several weeks, I'm interested to hear how long 'Colourburst' lasts.
Delighted with your delivery service - thank you so much. Ordering was easy and the price very reasonable. I was kept informed of the bouquet's delivery progress and the recipient's were thrilled to receive it. My son is a director/photographer and well-used to exotic locations and flowers, yet he is amazed by the Blue Dendrobiums incredible colour and form.
These were bought for my mother for Mothers Day. Her favourite colour is blue and she said she has never seen a more vibrant blue flower in her life. We couldn't figure out if they are naturally this colour or if it is artificially encouraged, but she said they were so beautiful she didn't really care either way. Delivered on time with no problems
The Blue Dendrobium were simply stunning. Even before the flower appears, the colours of the 'pods' are gorgeous. My mum said she had not seen such colours as this bouquet displayed. They were delivered on time and I would recommend Serenata Flowers to anyone seeking to uplift or bring joy in to someone's life. So very pleased with my purchase...... STUNNING
Is there a blue rose? Roses don't naturally grow in blue colour because they lack the necessary pigment called delphinidin which would enable them to grow blue petals. Even after years of testing and growing various hybrids of roses, a true blue roses still doesn't occur naturally, there simply isn't a simple gene that would make it possible to grow blue roses. So if you're wondering if you can grow a blue rose in your garden, the answer is simply no. The pigment necessary to produce the blue tint on petals – Delphinidin – was successfully used in tests with pansies which were grown in blue colour after the gene that leads to generation of this pigment was successfully implanted. Unfortunately, there is no similar option with roses, where the pigment doesn't occur naturally. Blue roses are created by dyeing either cream or white roses with a tint. Where can you by a blue rose? Many florists and online florists will give you the option to buy these roses, but beware that the tint may shorten the life of the roses. That's the reason why we at SerenataFlowers.com don't offer blue roses as we believe in only offering the nature's finest – roses in their natural colours.
The meaning of blue roses derives from their colour – blue has always been associated with royalty and so blue roses symbolise majesty and splendor. Because of their rare appearance and the fact that they don't naturally occur in nature, some cultures believe that the recipient of a blue rose will have its wishes granted. The meaning stems from a nature of blue roses as something unachievable and rare, and so by presenting someone with a blue rose you are giving them a wish fulfilled.
What occasion are blue flowers suitable for? Of course for new baby celebrations – they can be sent to the hospital to celebrate the birth of a baby boy or brought to a baby shower if you know the mum is expecting a baby boy. Blue flowers are also a great alternative to give to men – opt for masculine blooms in blue hues, and get them delivered straight to the door. One of our most popular blue bouquets is our Ocean Whisper arrangement with white gerbera daisies, blue delphinium and sprinkles of purple Limonium flowers. If you want a bouquet with softer blue hues, you might like our Summer Skies bouquet with white roses, blue delphinium and purple freesia. All of our blue flower bouquets are available for free next day delivery anywhere in the UK. Simply place your order online at SerenataFlowers.com by 10.00 pm weekdays for free next day delivery.
