Among roses, Blue Roses are one of the most difficult flower hybrids to make. Cross pollinating these can take a lot of time, even with time travelling.

Steps to breed Blue Roses

1 Get Red, White, and Yellow Roses.
2 Make some Purple Hybrid Roses by cross pollinating two White roses.
Make some Orange Hybrid Roses by cross pollinating Yellow and Red roses.
4 Cross Pollinate the Purple Hybrid and Orange Hybrid roses to create Red Hybrid roses.
5 Use the Red Hybrid roses to make Blue roses. (Very Low Probability)

You need a Red Hybrid Rose

A very important thing to keep in mind when trying to grow Blue Roses, is that they require a special Red Rose which is also grown through Cross Pollination.

These Red Roses are made by Cross Pollinating Purple and Orange roses. It's important to keep these separate from your normal Red roses, as they don't help grow the Blue Roses.

Cross Pollination Guide

Blue Roses may not grow the next day

Even if you've fulfilled all the preconditions for Cross Pollination, it may not occur the very next day. You might have to wait multiple days for Blue Roses to appear. Be sure to plant as many special Red Roses as possible to maximize your chances of Blue Roses appearing.

Once you get one, separate it from the rest of the roses and water it by itself to make it clone itself.

Trade Online

If you're struggling to get a specific flower type or hybrid color, trading with others online might be the quickest way to get them!

How to Multiply Blue Roses

Clone the Blue Roses you have

The easiest way to get Blue Roses for sure is to clone the ones you have. To clone flowers, plant them somewhere where they aren't touching any other flowers of their type and water them every day. Eventually, they will make a copy of themselves in one of the empty spaces!

Repeat the Breeding Process

Once you get Blue Roses to grow, you can repeat the process to get more. Since it's a rare flower, we recommend growing a lot of them!

Even if you've fulfilled all the preconditions for Cross Pollination, it may not occur the very next day. You might have to wait multiple days for Blue Roses to appear. If it doesn't show up the day after that, you'll simply have to continue waiting.

Once there's at least one Blue Rose growing near other roses, there's a small chance it can grow another Blue Rose.

The information here is technically correct, but there’s one thing to keep in mind when it comes to ACNH flowers: Your island’s native flower gets some additional “fast track” routes for breeding into the rare hybrids. Unfortunately, if roses are not the flower you had all over the plane when you first created your island, then breeding your own blue roses is gonna take A LOT more planning, effort and time. If you’re still up for it, google “yuecrossing gardening”. Best guides available.

I now have 75 blue roses. The Spawn rate is similar to the black roses, every 2 days a new rose appears unless you already have several then u can have 2 or 3 appear at one time.
