Rainbow Rose

I was looking thru flowers and came across multi-colored and dyed roses. I decided to do a photo manipulation of one of my photography images. This rainbow rose is photoshopped, but there are really rainbow colored roses for real. They call it "Happy Roses"

Here's the original:

After seeing how beautifully made the rose came out, I wanted to get some for myself but none of my local florists carry it nor make it. There is a shop I found that have a website is http://www.happy-roses.com. They are located in the Netherlands. Here is the info taken from their website:

How does a Happy Rose get its special colours?

The Happy Roses are placed in special water. Different substances are dissolved in this water. The rose branch absorbs this water as part of a natural process. This is what changes the colour of the petals. What makes Happy Roses unique is that the inventor has managed to colour a few petals, for example, yellow, whilst at the same time other petals colour differently, for example, blue, orange or lilac. It even proved possible to achieve a range of different colourings in the flower, which as it were fan around one another. This resulted in these unique, colourful and cheerful roses
