Rainbow roses all the rage in Japan

Rainbow roses aren't new, but according to the Asahi Shinbun, they're really starting to take off in Japan.


A florist in Nagoya reports a sudden increase in orders this months—and, interestingly, most of the buyers are men in their 30s or 40s.


Rainbow roses are made by watering the flowers with a series of different colored natural dyes as they grow.



When you can't decide what color roses to get, you can get every color in the rainbow in a single bouquet.
