The “Skeleton Flower” Turns From White to Translucent When Exposed to Water

The Diphelleia grayi or “Skeleton Flower” is finally a reason to look forward to rainy days. This rare flower transforms into a translucent beauty [its skeletal form] when exposed to water, its white petals becoming completely clear while wet, then transforming back to their original color once dry.

Found in only three locations in the world, the flower grows in the colder regions of China and Japan, and within the United States’ Appalachian Mountains. In addition to its transformation capabilities, the flower is also recognized by its large, umbrella-like leaves and bright green and yellow centers. To watch the transformation of the Diphelleia grayi from white to translucent, watch the video above. (via Bored Panda)
