Flowers Turns Beautifully into “Skeleton Flowers” in Rain

The Diphylleia grayi is an astonishing flower with white petals that turn gorgeously transparent upon contact with water. During light rain showers, the elusive blooms transform into blossoms as clear as glass, fitting its common moniker "skeleton flower." However the plant can be found growing on moist, wooded mountainsides in the colder regions of Japan and China come late spring. The stunning Diphylleia grayi is known by its large, specifically umbrella-like leaves topped with small clusters of pearly white blossoms that undergo an enchanted transformation in the rain.
