Pantone’s color of the year has been annually announced for the last 20 years. Each year, it gains popularity among the public yet mostly influences Designers of all kinds. We take the color of the year in to consideration when it sparks our creativity for new color combinations in the garden.
2019 Color of the Year
This year is the color of Living Coral and we love it. It is a bright yet mellow color that gives a sense of warmth and joy. While being an energized and playful color, it is also a more mature tone of pink that anyone can enjoy. This color is perfect for summer as there are many annuals that produce this pigmentation. Here are a few examples to get you started if you too find this color intriguing.
Proven Winners – 2019 Summer Annuals
New Guinea Impatiens need part shade to full shade. If you have a dappled light area, use these in the front of your garden beds as a sweep of color. You can also use them as a filler in a container for a pop of color all summer long.
Calibrachoas prefer full sun to part sun. These are best used in containers as a spiller to cascade over the edge of your container. This annual will bloom throughout the summer without the need of deadheading.
Canna Lilies like full sun to part shade, however they will tolerate more shade than you may think. After growing them in a mono culture container last year in full shade, I was surprised to see them constantly blooming until frost.
