The Blue Rose - Blue rose - Netflix

A blue rose is a flower of the genus Rosa (family Rosaceae) that presents blue-to-violet pigmentation instead of the more common red, white, or yellow. Blue roses are often portrayed in literature and art as symbols of love, prosperity, or immortality. However, because of genetic limitations, they do not exist in nature. In 2004 researchers used genetic modification to create roses that contain the blue pigment delphinidin. So-called “blue roses” have been bred by conventional hybridization methods, but the results, such as “Blue Moon”, are more accurately described as lilac in color.

The Blue Rose - Cultural significance - Netflix

In some cultures, blue roses are traditionally associated with “blue” royal blood, and thus the blue rose can also denote regal majesty and splendor. Due to the absence in nature of blue roses they have come to symbolise mystery and longing to attain the impossible, with some cultures going so far as to say that the holder of a blue rose will have his/her wishes granted. In literature, they appear in Tennessee Williams' play The Glass Menagerie, with Jim nicknaming Laura “Blue Roses” after mishearing her explain that she'd been out of school with pleurosis. They also appear in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, when Prince Rhaegar Targaryen presents a crown of such roses to Lady Lyanna Stark, in The Thief of Bagdad (1940 film), where they cause any who breathe their fragrance to forget everything and in David Lynch's Twin Peaks, during the description of a variety of top-secret cases that involve the supernatural.
