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).

For me, February is truly the month of new beginnings. In January, we are settling into the year after the post-Christmas rush, and trying (really hard!) to stick to those new year resolutions. Then February comes around and we feel we can really get kick started with the year ahead. For those of you luckily enough to be born in this wonderful month, as the spring flowers begin to bloom, your birth flower is the violet.
