    Wow, never saw a BLUE orchid before, didn't know they had them.
    Wish my late nurseryman DH could have seen one, he often dreamed of a real blue Rose. Wonder if this was a gene splice, marvelous color. Now for that true blue rose!!

    Reminds me of my recent trip to Longwood Gardens for the Orchid show. I didn't see any blue orchids there, though, it must be dyed.

    Beautiful!! I got an orchid this week from someone too..one of the doctors I work with gave me one for helping her get a long overdue reimbursement for a conference. She is so sweet.

    I've never seen a blue orchid...did they dye it?

    I think they must have used the old dye the water trick to get that blue!! :-)

    I don't know what they did. My first thought was its dyed but there is A tag in it say Blue Mystique.
    web site www.silvervase.com --- I have about 18 others all in bloom differant colors but this also is the first blue one I have ever seen.
