I haven't but I object to the current practices some people are using.  I am also an avid orchid grower.  The blue ones you see in the stores are actually white.  They inject a blue dye into the lower part of the flower stem.

introduced to Agapanthus, apparently because he had seen what he assumed 
to be yellow and red ones at a Dutch flower market. He admitted they 
might not have been Agapanthus (my first guess) but wondered if they 
were genetically modified to introduce new colors. I also suggested that 
these cut flowers may have been dyed, as chrysanthemums often are. Has 
anyone heard about actual color changes newly found in Agapanthus?
