Pantone has named its highly anticipated Colour of the Year for 2020 and we could not be more excited.
Tranquil, dependable and enduring, Classic Blue is set to dominate the world of design in 2020 and, while sure to be reflected in our interiors and wardrobes, the colour of the moment won’t go unnoticed by florists either.
Given the focus on well-being in 2019, Pantone’s colour of choice for 2020 isn’t entirely unexpected. Classic Blue is wonderfully calming with blue hues being intrinsically linked with a focused mind, sense of clarity and calm.
What flowers lend themselves to the Pantone Colour of the Year?
There aren’t many true blue flowers in nature but that doesn’t matter – not when the stems are as gorgeous as these; delphiniums, agapanthus, scabious, cornflowers, and hyacinths. of course there's hydrangea too – always a firm favourite in the summer, its pretty petals range from china blue to a deep midnight hue (the strength of the colour blue varies depending on the acidity of the soil they are grown in).

As bright thoughts flash through dull grief-laden day,
The red poinsettia raise its flag of hope!” Emily Bulcock, 1923
Pointsettia are synomymous with Christmas, and if you’re born in December the Poinsettia is your birth flower.
