The blue color is undoubtedly the most impeccable color to ever exist. You ain’t human if you don’t love royalty and fidelity of the magnanimous blue color. Incorporate the grace of this color into your garden and create a sight to swoon away the onlookers.
Different shades of blue color depict different emotions and feelings. For instance, it symbolizes gloomy nature on one hand and tranquility on the other. The color is more expressive than most humans ( lol 😛 ).
Surprisingly, blue flowers rarely exist in nature as there’s no blue-colored pigment present in the plants. Scientifically, for a substance to seem blue, it’s essential that it absorbs red photons of the visible light. An evolved class of plant pigments – the anthocyanins, under suitable chemical reactions, naturally absorb red light but the phenomenon occurs seldomly ( quite a lot of chemistry 😛 ). However, scientists and gardeners breed similar shades through artificial methods.
