Default Phaleonopsis, blue

Is there any phaleonopsis which is blue and not white but died blue? A phaleonopsis called Royal Blue is on sale here for about 22 US dollars. If it really is blue and not white died blue I shall probably buy it but I do not want to discover myself with yet another white phaleonopsis when it blooms again next year. Thank you for answering.

No, there are some lilac which are the closest but in Phals I've never seen one that actually looked blue (there are some blue vanda's but some argue those aren't a true blue either).

In China or somewhere like that they have tried to produce one using genetic manipulation but I doubt those are on sale in Europe yet.

To me even those are fake so not so pretty as if I knew it was natural, but those on sale just now are all dyed which is even worse because I know people who have been fooled into thinking they would carry on blooming blue.

Thank you everyone. I too do not want any orchid that has been dyed. The Phaleonopsis I would buy must be blue every year and never revert to white or any other colour. I have seen blue Vandas. They look pretty but I doubt if I could give them the conditions and attention they need.
