How can roses be used to purify toxic soil?

    Roses such as Paul’s scarlet rose can be used to purify organic contaminants in through the process of phytodegredation. In phytodegredation, either enzymes produced by the plant degrade contaminants around the plant or the plant absorbs contaminants and breaks them down through metabolic processes. In both cases, these contaminants are broken down and absorbed by plants in order to make them grow faster. The enzymes within plants that utilize phytodegredation (including Paul’s scarlet rose) also speed up the reaction which breaks down organic contaminants, which likely makes it easier than traditional methods of cleaning up pollution.
