Purple is the 2017 Color of the Year, as proclaimed by the Pantone Corporation – a company that is in the business of creating and defining new colors for painters, artists, and even landscapers.

Each year in December, Pantone uses a color to describe the year we have had as a nation, or set the tone for what they feel it should be during the next year. This year, the “Color of the Year” is Ultra Violet: the color purple! They say, it’s a blend of red and blue, which is to represent a hope of unity in our country and the political scene.

In the Pacific Northwest, our gardens are often various shades of GREEN. And we love green, but it is so nice to have a rainbow of other colors too. Purple flowers are the perfect addition to a garden because the color blends so well with all the other colors. We can enjoy purple flowers all year – from purple crocuses in the spring to purple iris in fall.

Colors have so many different meanings and affect our emotions in a variety of ways. Purple has stood for sacrifice (as in the Purple Heart) and royalty. It has also been the color of luxury, mystery, creativity, magic and wisdom. What better way to celebrate the color of the year than by planting purple flowers. They can unite the colors of your landscape…like magic!
