Abstract: In the past 10 years, the genetic engineering including the mechanism, purification of enzydmes and isolation of genes had gotten a great achievement. In the industry of the flowers and plants it also had come into wide use and gotten outstanding achievement in the study of the flowers and plants. The paper reports the advances of genetic engineering used to improve the shapes of flower, flowering time and shelf life of flower in detail.

Key words: Genetic engineering
