Blue Dragon Rose Seeds?

Somebody gave me these as a bonus with purchase, but I didn't know what they were and never got around to planting them. Anybody grow these? Any suggestions? thinking

Intriguing. I Googled and apparently the blue and stripes are photo shopped. But it would be interesting to follow the online directions and see what happens.

They say they're easy to grow but I didn't think real roses could be grown from seed by amateurs. Maybe I'll start them after Christmas and see what happens. geek

Oh dear.   Embarassed  I was so excited & intrigued by the color I never even considered it might not be real.  Sorry.  If it sounds (looks) too good to be true...etc. etc.etc.

Not being a rose expert, I think most roses are grafted onto hearty stock.

In doing some digging on Google, you're correct. Rose seeds need to be in the fridge for a couple of months, etc.

But at least it didn't cost you anything extra.

My advice would be to put it in a pot and see what actually comes up...

Ooo, thanks, Marie. I'll stick them in the fridge right now.

Or, stick them in an outdoor pot in the shade. Our winter temps may work.

One article mentioned that the true color is lavender or purple.  There are no blue blue roses.
