Rainbow Roses: Wouldn’t These Be Nice Next V-Day?


Aren’t these absolutely gorgeous?  I have a soft spot for roses.  Any kind.  They’re just so precious! 

And yes, these are real flowers.  They start out as cream roses.  Over the course of 12-24 hours, they turn rainbow-colored by putting a drop in food coloring in their water one at a time, and as the roses soak up the water, the petals take on the colors of the food dye.  Apparently, they don’t know how to control what petals get what colors; that appears to be completely random.  I would imagine you could do this at home, if you wanted!

Check out this awesome video, too! (Don’t worry, it’s short!)

  1. This is AMAZING!! I am going to have to try this sometime! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. cool. I've heard of using one color to dye carnations but I've never heard of multiple colors on roses. Very neat.
