Blue is an unusual hue for blooms. Indeed, you only come across true blue flowers, well, once in blue moon – unless, of course, you happen to live near a stream in a high-altitude meadow, where they are fairly prevalent. You'll find blue flowers evoke tranquility and harmony and portray a sense of stability suggestive of confidence, honesty and security.

I ordered flowers on Wednesday night for delivery on the Friday but for some reason, Serenata flowers overruled my request & delivered on the Saturday which fortunately, wasn't a problem as the recipients were home.The mini blue orchids (forget their official name) were gorgeous & a bright vivid blue. I paid extra for the 'grand size' (16 stems) & was glad I did, as I don't think just 8 would have cut the mustard. Even 16 didn't look much, to be honest. And the baby boy balloon was very small.
I did not see the flowers but the recipient was pleased with them. It was a hot day and fortunately they found the flowers in the porch (they were in) almost immediately. I thought the porch option was when no-one was at home. I received Serenata flowers for Mother's Day this year. My neighbour told me the delivery man would not leave them with him and after being out all day I found the box upside down in the blue recycling bin. Fortunately they survived without much damage. It would have been preferable if they had been the right way up!
Flowers, delivery etc. were excellent. My only quibble is with the card which was inappropriately large and an almost garish blue in colour. I feel a rather more discreet item would have been more fitting.
Blue roses – cultivation, meaning and delivery
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.
