The blue rose called “Applause” was developed by choosing roses with petals that have high flavonol and high pH for introduction of two genes. One transgene was the pansy F3’5’H gene to favor production of delphinidin-based anthocyanins and the other was Torenia, a gene that codes for anthocyanin 5-aromatic acyltransferase to enable acylation of anthrocyanin with an organic acid. Applause went on sale in TokyoTokyo in 2009 and was introduced into the U.S. and Canada in 2011.Applause was named the official flower of the GRAMMY’s Awards in 2018.
