Vibrant blue colours have always made quite an impression. Widely used as energy flowers, they are also great flowers to send as a new-baby-boy gift. Some of the best blue flowers come in the form of hydrangeas, hyacinths, freesias and long stem iris flowers.
Sending blue flowers online is certainly a popular way of welcoming a new baby boy into this world. As the colour blue represents the sky and the sea, it is also, as such, representative of flowers in a calming manner. The person who wishes to send blue flowers is usually conveying messages of peace and tranquillity. However, as has often been the case in nature, this calm can very easily transform into more passionate forms. It has to be said that this colour is not always easily obtained and its true forms only really come with flowers like iris, hydrangea, hyacinth, agapanthus and delphinium. As such, the blue flowers are often sometimes represented by purples and lilacs.
Lately, we have also seen a rise in the popularity of a blue-headed rose. Don't be alarmed, due to its genetic limitations this rose is really a white rose dyed by florists. But, it does represent a significant symbol of achieving the impossible. And the person wishing to send these flowers is usually after their holy grail.

Various shades of blue represent different feelings and thoughts. For example, a light blue shade symbolises calmness, while dark blue represents depth and solidity. A blue flower typically symbolises the feelings of desire, love, hope, and the beauty of things. Blue flowers are uncommon in nature, so that’s why they represent royalty, mystery, and intrigue. It also serves as motivation for those who are ambitious. Some people also associated sadness and sorrow with blue flowers.
Gifting a blue flower bouquet to someone means different things depending on the state of mind and situation. Blue flowers are ideal if you want to express affection and keep the romance level high. Similar to this, blue flowers can be a wonderful gift to lift someone's spirits, offer them hope, and serve as inspiration. Also, the blue colour has a calming effect, so to relax someone from their daily life tensions, send elegant blue flowers bouquets for them. Most commonly blue flowers are sent to congratulate a birth of a baby boy.
Lobelia is the only variety of flowers in the world that mostly bloom in truly blue colour. What is the rarest blue flower?
The Grape Hyacinth is a unique and beautiful bulb-shaped blue flower. It grows in clusters in mid-spring. blue fringed daisies, blue clematis, blue hydrangeas, blue roses, morning glory, and blue dandelions are also found rare in nature.
Naturally, a blue rose does not exist. However, using the pigment "Delphinidin," scientists have genetically altered white roses to become blue roses. The colour is not precisely blue but close to dull mauve or lavender. Other methods include soaking a white rose in a water solution that contains food colouring, a specific agent, or a different dye to turn it into a blue rose.
Various blue flowers are available around the year like hydrangeas, delphiniums, clematis, irises, hyacinths, bellflowers, asters, carnations, orchid flowers, morning glory, hibiscus, periwinkle, forget-me-nots, love in mistflower and desert bluebells.
Since there is no naturally occurring blue chemical to colour objects blue, blue is a unique hue in nature. Less than one in ten flowers have blue blossoms. When the Egyptians started mining the vivid blue lapis lazuli mineral thousands of years ago, it was costly because blue rocks and minerals are also so uncommon and expensive.
lobelia, iris setosa, cornflowers, rose of Sharon, bellflower, gentian, hydrangeas, lily of the Nile, dwarf morning glory and others are among the best blue-flowered container plants, producing lovely blue flowers in the spring and summer.
