On Trend Colours 2019

Driving colour direction for growers and retailers, here is our colour and plant trends forecast for 2019. 

Our plant experts have identified four key trends. Shown here are the core colours, the inspiration driving the trend, and a selection of suitable plants.

Take a Country Walk

Nature – bringing colour, texture and pattern to planting

Rich, dark colour, delicate texture and natural pattern. The abundant wealth of colours and structures found on a country walk, provides the inspiration for the Nature trend.

Sit the bold damson tones of Viola Vibrante F1 Ruby & Gold or a fiery autumnal red, like Celosia Dragon’s Breath, alongside muted greeny browns of coloured foliage such as Ajuga Mahogany

Gold-coloured yellows such as award-winning Pansy Freefall®F1 XL Bright Yellow add a hint of contrasting colour against spikier, more dramatic plants like Dianella caerulea Cassa Blue or those that introduce texture such as Salvia Victoria Blue. This theme also welcomes plants that bring pattern to displays such as Alstroemeria Inca Sundance.

Find a Relaxing Space

Lifestyle – a gentle out of this world haven

Creating a safe, relaxed, almost out of this world, planting space is the focus for this trend. 

Soft pastel shades using plants like Primrose Provence F1 Mix, the lavender colours of Scabiosa japonica Ritz Rose or the delicate pattern of Myosotis Savoie combine with stronger more jewel-coloured options like Phlox Popstars F1 Mix or Pansy Premier F1 Blue with Blotch

Gently contrast these with neutral tones of Senator IQ F1 White to satisfy the forthcoming begonia resurgence or introduce more structured options in the form of Digitalis parviflora Milk Chocolate

In terms of foliage the feathery blue texture of Festuca glauca Elijah Blue adds further interesting contrast as does the dominant sage-grey colour of Brachyglottis Walberton’s Silver Dormouse.

Lift your Spirits

Contemporary – for bold, statement garden design 

Attention seeking garden design that’s not for the faint hearted. This theme makes a statement.  

Bright rich reds of a mass planting option like new SunPatiens® Vigorous Red, the fun, flashy Labella® Grande Red stand off against the coppery-brown colour of Rodgersia Bronze Peacock or sculptural shapes of stunning perennial, Sempervivum Ruby Hearts.

Alternatively, the tropical burnt orange hues of trailing Begonia Illumination F1 Golden Picotee work confidently with berry shades like Alyssum Easter Bonnet Violet. This bold colour effect could also be achieved using a mix option like Gazania Kiss F1 Mix. These plants lift the spirits considerably.

Add a Twist to Home Comforts

Traditional – familiar formality with an optimistic twist

Classic blends with contemporary here. Traditional colours combine with more modern blush neutrals to give that fresh edge of optimism.

Forming the foundation of this colour theme are gallant blues and strong pinks. Plants like Corydalis Blue Heron sit aside the bold berry colours of Dahlia Labella® Medio Fun Scarlet Bicolour

Peachy neutrals such as Erysimum Artist Gogh’s Gold lift this trend’s style and pop against the stronger colours, pulling this colour theme together.
