When I was a little kid… it was Blue Carnations… but today there is Color Enhanced Flower of a different “color”… well NOT really a different color… but different Variety!
The Blue Orchid! (also Indigo and Purple)…On one of my recent trips to the grocery store I ran into this Display… it’s certainly eye catching… and important to note… it was grabbing the attention of customers (and buyers) passing by the aisle! I watched one lady pick up two while I was snapping pictures.
A couple years ago… We featured the RAINBOW Phalenopsis Orchids created by Peter VanDeWerken of Happy Colors in Amsterdam on JTV! Peter created the Rainbow Roses that have been so popular… and he had developed a way to do it with all kinds of flowers including orchids!
Now the Orchid Plants themselves can have this top secret “coloring” applied to them… and they come in a wide variety of colors. What is So fascinating to me… is how Popular the BLUE Orchids are with Young Flower Buyers… and “BLUE” Color Lovers… Lee Eisemann Pantone Color Guru tells us that people that love BLUE are more accepting of Man-Made Blue Flowers… because they Adore Blue… and they can look beyond the “dying process” because they are so FOND of the color Blue!
In Fact over 35% of the General Public Loves BLUE… making it the most popular of ANY color! Lee also shared that Purple and Indigo are runners up for being the Color of the Year for 2012! Since there are so few flowers that come in INDIGO… the Blue Orchid could become even more POPULAR in the year to come!
I love EVERY Flower… there isn’t one I won’t try … and there’s Something for everyone! But I’m interested… what do you think? Blue Orchids Love ‘em or ????
