2020 Color Trends for Gardeners

2020 Color Trends for Your Flower Garden - Longfield Gardens

Pantone’s 2020 color of the year is Classic Blue. In the horticultural world, true blue is hard to find, so gardeners can’t do much with this year’s color. But Pantone also publishes a Fashion Color Trends Report. These are the colors fashion designers are expected to feature in their spring and summer 2020 collections.

You may say that color trends in the fashion world have no impact on the flowers you choose for your garden. I’d agree. But they can be a source of inspiration for new colors and color pairings. This year’s fashion trend report, features lots of warm, sunny hues: saffron, orange peel, coral pink, cinnamon stick, scarlet and sunlight. As you begin planning your 2020 garden, consider including some of these on-trend colors.
