With Living Coral ordained "The Color of 2019" last month, we are just in time to plan an on-trend flower garden that will provide you with a la mode cut flowers all summer long! Here I will detail 4 color combinations, one for each season, that perfectly compliment the coral blooms that promise to be all the rage this year.
1. Coral and Yellow - Spring
This combination is well suited for spring arrangements and weddings and pairs well with aqua and beach themes.
Ranunculus: Often called the spring rose, layers upon layers of blooms in saturated colors.
Peony: Show stopping and intoxicatingly fragrant blooms.
Peach Roses: Romantic and fragrent.
Craspedia : bright yellow pom-pom like blooms that add instant whimsy to any arrangement.
2. Coral with Pink and Raspberry - Summer
In this combination the pink serves to reflect the highlights within coral blooms and the raspberry to help saturate the lowlights. This classically romantic combination can bridge a spring or summer event from daytime into the evening.
Peony: Lage and fragrant focal flowers.
Roses: Romantic and fragrant.
Dahlia: Enormous focal flowers.
Amaranthus: Textured and saturated garnet filler.
Fern: Wispy, green filler that provides texture.
3. Coral with Plum - Fall
Purple tones are lightened by the coral blooms that pop against a darkening background, making for a striking autumn arrangement.
Scabiosa - deep purple ball like blooms
Peony - focal flower in coral
Dahlia - Cafe au lait, cream color with pink undertones, super on trend for weddings.
Raniculus -In reds or deep purple, these compact blooms bring romance to arrangements.
4. Coral with Serenity - Winter
If the color name serenity sounds familiar, its because it was named color of the year in 2016. Matched with coral it provides a calming and cooling effect on the more vibrant pinks and orange hues on trend this year.
Peony - Such a statement, such a perfume!
Dusty Miller - lush silvery, blue tones with a soft texture
Silver Brunia - Silver Berries bring back winter vibes.
