Blue Rose is world's first

Recommended Posts

Suntory (the Japanese liquor company from Lost in Translation) has created the world's blue (or almost-blue) rose.

Work on a blue rose has been on-going for years. Story here, including:

Suntory said it eventually succeeded in creating blue pigment in roses by implanting the gene that leads to the synthesis of blue pigment from pansies. Unlike roses created by using conventional breeding technologies, the roses developed in the Suntory project have almost 100% Delphinidin in their petals, which has made new and very different blue roses possible.
