The Beautiful Rainbow Roses

public domain image:wikipedia

You may think that these unusual and breathtaking Rainbow Roses are artificial or even painted, but they are in fact 100 percent natural roses. Well almost… they have been messed with, on a genetic level...

It seems that the Rainbow Rose has had its petals artificially colored. The technique takes advantage of the rose's natural processes by which water is drawn up the stem. By splitting the stem and dipping each part in a differently colored water, the colors are drawn into the petals resulting in a multi-colored rose.

The rainbow rose is obtainable in different color combinations. The most admired is the variant with all the colors of the rainbow. There are also the tropical variant combinations (red/pink and yellow), and the ocean variant combinations (green and blue). Other color combinations are also probable, however black and white is impossible to make.
