Inspiration from the Color of the Year
Just in time to brighten these dreary days of winter, Pantone has announced Viva Magenta as its Color of the Year for 2023. They describe this vibrant choice as “a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength . . . it is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration.” The horticultural experts at Gerbert & Sons will suggest plantings that reflect this exciting blend of red and pick, adding a cheerful new pop of excitement to your property. The “Uproar Rose” variety of zinnia has been offered as a natural example of this eye-catching color, adding unique beauty to any garden, as well as an ideal cut flower to enliven your home’s interior. Other native plants to our area that embody the spirit of Pantone’s Viva Magenta include the perennial Scarlet Beebalm, blooming in early to late summer, and Winterberry, with its red berries adding a much needed splash of color throughout the winter months.
Give Gerbert & Sons a call at (203) 324-3817 to explore ways to incorporate this joyful color into your home’s landscape.
