While the colour blue is a ubiquitous colour in our world, natural blue flowers only account for 10 percent of blooms. However, a recent development might change that.
We have some exciting news – natural blue flowers are here! After years of testing, one of our flower growers has developed a new chrysanthemum called “BluOcean.” This is a new line of flowers that have been bred to feature incredible blue hues. The grower’s press release states, “The teams worked tirelessly to develop a chrysanthemum with an enchanting blue hue, previously unseen in nature.”
We expect these to be trendy flowers globally, which could limit their supply. Nonetheless, expect to see them in our coolers and work with your Fresh Flower CSRs to bring them into your shop.
