Incorporating plants into your interior design is a great way to add life and beauty to your home. Nothing can breathe life into a room quite like a flowering plant or bouquet of fresh flowers. Botanicals not only add a burst of color, but they also add fragrance. Using trending colors, like Pantone’s Color of the Year is an instant way to upgrade your home. The color that sets the tone in the fashion industry this year is Living Coral, a vibrant yet mellow shade that warms up your surroundings. Consider these five florals to incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year into your home.
‘Clementine Salmon Rose’ Columbine
Columbine is a unique coral-colored plant features interesting shaped blooms. This sturdy stemmed flower offers double blooms and would look great on top of a dresser or side table. Place a pot of Columbine in a shady spot that doesn’t get too hot. If you decide to transplant a potted flower outside this spring, make sure you plant it in soil with plenty of drainage. You may also want to mix some compost into the soil. Since it’s a perennial and common native flower, it will flourish year after year.
‘Salmon Pearl’ Tulip
Add a touch of Living Coral color to a bedroom with a Salmon Pearl colored tulip in a bud vase. Its light pink hue and coral petaled edges give the room a soothing feeling. You could also place them in an entryway or on a sofa table to accent the Living Coral within the room as well.
‘Coral Knock Out’ Rose
Whether in a vase or potted as a shrub, roses never disappoint. The Coral Knock Out Rose is part of a new line that offers saturated color. Plant this variety outdoors and then bring in cuttings for the kitchen or master bedroom. These roses will add a touch of elegance to any room. The plants can grow up to 4 feet tall and wide outdoors making them an excellent choice if you want to add some Living Coral to your yard. With proper care, these roses will continue to bloom in your garden for years.
‘Toucan Coral’ Canna
If you’re looking for a coral flower that would do well in a bathroom, look no further than this Canna Lily in ‘Toucan Coral’. Known for tolerating heat and humidity, Canna Lilies will stand up to the conditions of any bathroom. This long blooming plant will reach about 2 feet tall when planted indoors. You do need a bathroom that gets sunlight for this plant to thrive. This plant is also a good option for smaller backyards and a great choice for those tighter spaces within your home as well.
‘Belle of Barmera’ Dahlia
This beautiful flower offers single blooms that would look great on a kitchen counter or dining table. Dahlias in the ‘Belle of Barmera’ shade do well in containers. The flower offers large single blooms that pack a punch of color to any room. We love the stunning look of dahlias with their ragged edges that resemble a mix of carnations and roses.
