In this Feb. 8, 2018 photo, selected roses sit in a tray before being put through a chemical process to extract their natural red color, infuse them with a new one, and preserve them at the flower farm Sisapamba in Tabacundo, Ecuador. The two-day process involves cutting the flower at full bloom, dipping it into a plant-based solution to extract the natural colors and then infusing it with a pigment of the customer's choice.
