Blue Colored Roses

Lavender roses are often called blue colored roses. When describing roses, lavender is the more accurate term. Best light purple varieties including climbing roses and landscape shrubs.

Purple rose color meaning varies according to the shade of the flower.

A lavender purple rose signifies something slightly different from a deep purple rose.

This is a listing of the best blue colored roses you can grow.

To describe a rose plant as blue is somewhat misleading. A natural blue rose has yet to be developed. The blue roses you see in wedding arrangements have been dyed by a florist.

Roses with the word "blue" in their name will most often possess lavender petals. The flowers of these plants will vary in hue from mauve to orchid to purple. I am not including the deep purple roses in this listing.
