Rainbow Roses 3

This years offering of the Rainbow Roses at the LA County Fair (2007).

 

Its rainbow of colors is the result of a complicated process that injects colored dye into the stem of each bloom in four different places. The rose absorbs the colors into specific cells, producing the vibrant hues of the rainbow. Unfortunately, this rose is an experimental rose and is not available for home gardens.
