The Color Purple
Neutral tones are out, and two colors in particular are in. One is purple, Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year, with a vibrant, lively hue that’s regal and joyful. The other is clover green.
“It’s about renewal, rebirth and stability,” according to the Garden Trends Report. “And there’s no color that gets at that like green. Vibrant green reminds us of life, renewal and nature.”
Purple is easy to introduce into the landscape. Purple cultivars are available for a wide selection of flowers, including petunia, vinca, pansy, verbena, salvia and veronica. Green is even easier — after all, it’s the most common color in the garden. It’s also a natural, less jarring color for outdoor furniture and accessories.
