Connie is right, this is not photoshopped. Roses such as these are called variegated roses (as opposed to two-tone roses where the colour gradually changes from one to another). They are not new, they've been around for quite a long time. Perhaps the best-known one is Rosa Variegata di Bologna, a white & pink climbing variegated rose bred by Bonfiglioli & Son in 1909.

Interesting story A Bouts, This reminds me of a white flower that someone flung some red paint on. but nature has so many colors and patterns, so this could be a real flower. Great picture either way.

No, it's not photoshopped. These striped roses are not common, but they do exist, and are very striking. I have a couple of photos in my flower folders. However, the photographer somehow knew how to remove the colour from the leaves. Perhaps our resident expert, Kevin Walker, might know. Interesting info A Bouts about enriching the soil with rusted rail spikes...things we learn on Pixdaus!

Somebody please tell me this is photo shopped. It is an awesome color pattern for a rose or any flower for that matter. When we were kids Mom had us put rail spikes or old horse shoes in the dirt near flowering plants. When they got to be real rusty the plant would react to the new rust rich soil. And the flowers would bloom odd colors. But this is the first time I have seen anything like this.
