The article focuses on extremophile microbes, the tiny microscopic organisms that are building blocks of the soil in which the roses grow. The organisms are adaptable to the harshest living conditions and can live and thrive in the most inhospitable environments. The microbes also exist in the solid rock surrounding oil deposits two miles down.
