1 thought on “2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral Flowers

  1. That must be so frustrating for florists to keep up with! . . . unless of course, you all enjoy the challenge. We grow colors that have not changed for centuries. Some become more popular as others become less popular, but the changes are not so devastating to our production. We can always sell the less popular color while trying to build up stock for the next big rage. White will always be my favorite, but also very unpopular. There are only to pure white rhododendrons in our production, and we grow almost none of them anymore because the plants are so trashy. There are several whites that are much better, but the flowers are all blushed, spotted, speckled, striped, banded, or otherwise slightly adorned with some other color. If the Pantone colors change annually, there will be a new one before we could build up stock of the current color for 2019. I mean if we started growing more coral rhododendrons now, they would be ready in 2021.
