Every year PANTONE® announces the color of the year, which then appears everywhere in all kinds of products from fashion to home decor. Take for example the color for 2019: Living Coral.  It is an energizing soft orange with golden undertones. This warm, lively color appears in nature in plants that you can add to invigorate your landscape.

 

Incorporating Living Coral
This sunset-hue can be used in various ways in plant combinations. A touch of Living Coral can add a lot of drama. When combined with dark foliage plants such as dark purple heucheras and grasses it livens up the scene. It compliments warm color palettes when added to other peachy-toned plants. When combined with cool tones like blue and yellow it adds warmth.
