Blue rose is rare. And blue rose clipart is also rare.

Introducing Atelier Kaori’s Blue Rose Clipart

Blue Rose Clipart

I don’t like blue roses very much. Then you may think, so why did you paint blue roses? The answer for your question is, blue roses are very familiar and nostalgic for me.

The first time I saw a blue rose, on my bedding. I think you too. Why blue rose is very popular for bedding? Blue roses on the clothes are very cute, and have really “blue” color.

I imaged such a old fashion blue roses.

Have you ever seen blue roses? Original roses don’t have any blue pigment. So breeding “blue” rose is almost impossible.

Blue Rose History

In the 19th’, the first blue rose “Cardinal de Richelieu” was found. Correctly, this rose’s color is very deep violet. But it had been the most nearest to “blue” rose for a long time.

In the middle of 20th’, many breeders competed to breed true “blue” rose. And in the 21st’, we can see more better blue roses, but still there is no true “blue” rose. The color most of them are gray or lavender.

The blue rose I like are, “Turn Blue”, “Lucifer”, and “Lapis Lazuli”. They are gray or lavender, not blue for me. But I like because they are “not blue”. All of them are made by Japanese breeder. But I saw them only on the picture.

But a few years ago, a company found a rose’s original blue pigment from some breed of blue roses, that ever known before. It may let us see very “blue” rose someday. 

But I am not interesting about blue rose very much. If a rose is blue like a delphinium or hyacinth, is it attractive? I don’t think so.

I am a stubborn agnostic but in the case of blue roses, I say loud that nothing beautiful more than God’s creation (I mean I don’t agree with something like a gene recombination).

Some of blue roses are very attractive for flower arrangement, but I think they are not good for garden. I have seen several kind of blue roses in some rose gardens, their pale and dusty color is not noticeable.

Their flower looks like faces of patients, among the cheerful other flowers and very strong green leaves in the garden. And may be the color fade very sooner, under the strong sunshine in early summer, I guess.

How to Grow

Generally, roses demand to be cared very well, all year long. And weak illness and insects rather than other plants. But almost modern blue roses are more weak than other color roses. They demand to be treated more carefully. 

I have planted several roses but never planted blue one. I think they are very difficult for amateur gardeners. 

Real blue rose is not usual so…enjoy blue rose clipart!
