Observing our surroundings we can find a lot of beautiful things that can make our day brighter. One of those things; are flowers. They are one of the most wonderful and adorable creatures of nature that can fill the world with their sweet smell. Every flower has its uniqueness and it differs from others with color, smell, patterns, size etc. Roses are one of the most spread flowers in the world that have more than 100 species. Today, we can see roses of different unusual colors in the flower shops. Sometimes we are surprised when we see blue, black or bi-color roses with stripes. Those kinds of roses are not only artificially colored but they can be the result hybridization. For instance, the first blue rose which was created in 2004 by an Australian company Florigene and a Japanese company Suntory, is a result of genetic engineering of a white rose.
Lavender roses are one of the bestseller flowers in the world for their delicate color and beauty. They belong to Hybrid Tea family.
The Daring Spirit Rose was created in 2015 by Jackson and Perkins. It is a bi-color striped Hybrid Tea rose that is the combination of dark pink and white colors.
Black roses are very rare in nature. Actually, there are not black roses generally; they are dark red but can really seem like black. Many say that it is not a hybrid and those kinds of roses grow only in one of Turkey’s small villages and they are called Halfeti Roses.
These are the most popular and unique roses that do not grow without the intervention of the human. Although these roses sometimes seem artificial, they are real and are the result of hybridization. And it seems only the black rose, which is actually dark red, can grow without human intervention in Turkey.
