Each year, Pantone designates a “Color of the Year.” This color is meant to represent the current zeitgeist and often gets adopted into mainstream design trends. 2019’s color has been announced, and we’re excited to see that “Living Coral” is 2019’s Pantone color of the year. Living Coral is a beautiful color and it’s often mirrored in nature, meaning that clients who want an on-trend landscape can easily incorporate this year’s Pantone color through a variety of different plants. Here are a few that come to mind:
Tropicana Hybrid Tea Rose
This hybrid tea rose is a mixture of coral and orange and has a pleasantly fruity fragrance. Blooming in the late spring/early summer, the Tropicana hybrid tea rose grows 3 ½ – 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide and requires full sun to reach its full potential.
Sombrero Hot Coral Coneflower
This drought-tolerant perennial does well in sunny gardens and blooms from late spring through the summer. Sombrero Hot Coral Coneflower attracts butterflies and is deer resistant. Grows 24-26 inches tall and 16-22 inches wide.
