<humour> Telepathic aliens. I first considered that they might be aliens who emit hallucinogenic gas (similar to the ones in the 50s and 60s that emitted hypnotic gas that caused threatened females to stand & scream rather than run away), but that's a bit old-fashioned, and won't work unless either the roses are placed so that one must be close to see them or they emit so much gas that all of the UK is hallucinating. So, I pick telepathic aliens, perhaps even vampiric. How often do you lose blood when tending them? </humour>
