What Are Rainbow Roses and How to Make Them

, ,

Everybody knows what a rose is, but have you heard of a rainbow rose? A rainbow rose is exactly what its name describes—a regular rose with beautifully colored petals. This is a simple method that uses the natural process of the rose in which the water moves up the stem. Simply cut the stem into several parts, then dip each part into a colored liquid. The colored water is then brought to the petals, which will give you a colorful rose. The change in petal colors gave the creation its name rainbow rose.

The dyes used in this project were produced by using natural plant extracts. As the flower grows, the dye is absorbed by the flower. The colors look natural and do not fade when the rose is cut. They use a special process to control the amount of color absorbed by the petals. The colorful flower transformation takes 12 to 24 hours to complete. It is done using a scientific engineering method, so don’t be too disappointed if you can’t recreate the look. Consider it a success if each petal turns a different color.


Other flowers can be used and colored in the same method. Carnations, hydrangeas, some species of orchid, and chrysanthemums can all be successfully colored artificially.
