I have seen pictures of a multicolored rose, is it for real?

Each petal is a different color. How is this possible?


The rose you have seen is called the 'Happy Rose', unofficially also known as the 'Rainbow Rose'.

It is a real flower that has been dyed after cutting. They are produced in The Netherlands by a cut flower grower called Peter van de Werken. He developed a secret technique that makes each petal take on a different color.

I interviewed him for a magazine article so have seen and touched them for myself!
