Default hi there!

There was some talk about a almost blue rose although I can't remember who
put it out.

True blue is not in the genetic make-up of roses.

Cross pollination only effects the off-spring of a rose, not the rose it's
self, so the color of one rose does not effect the other. So plant away!
