Rainbow Roses❤

Oh so in love❤
Rainbow colored roses? Really??!
Yes... This would make any centerpiece classic. Endless ideas with this technique, Pinterest is really genius! Whoever is truly behind this site is making big money (cha Ching)
Now.. On to the topic we are here for..

First, purchase WHITE roses as many as you prefer. I enjoy fullness as centerpieces so, I'd say grab a dozen.
It is a simple process but the results are magnificent. You can do this by using transportation system of vascular plants. The xylem tubes of the roses stem sucks water and send it to the top end, to the leaves and the petals of the flowers. If the stem of a rose is submerged in colored water, it will pump the colored water to the flower. From the petals the water is evaporated but the color particles remain there. In this way the colors will be stored in the petals. As the outer layer of the petals of a white rose is transparent it will show this particular color. Do you get the physics (and botany too) behind? Pretty amazing and I am totally dying to create endless images. Are you going to try this magnificent idea?
