Heard of Blue Dyed Roses?

What if a true blue colored rose existed. But there is no true blue colored rose.

The meaning of Blue Rose is The unattainable or impossible. The Red rose on a valentine is for Passionate love.

I was passionate for blue roses, but I found that there was no blue pigment in roses. Only roses can be manipulated, dyed to attain that blue color.
