A Vibrant Garden with Living Coral
Who doesn’t love an award show? Celebrities in beautiful gowns and sharp tuxedos, photo opportunities on the red carpet, that edge-of-your-seat moment just before the winner is announced…We get to watch actors, writers and singers, all hoping for that extra special moment in the spotlights. But it’s not only the world’s entertainers that receive awards. In all countries and on all levels, people are recognized for making the world a better place. Nurse of the year, chef of the month, employee of the week…And why limit ourselves to people? Why not have a tree of the year? Or a cheese of the month?
Best & Brightest
Clearly, we all feel that anything that brightens up our lives deserves to be celebrated. And nowhere do brightness and celebration meet more vividly than in Pantone’s color institutes’ color of the year.
Since the year 2000 (Cerulean Blue) the company has held secret meetings in European capitals to decide on a color that they feel defines and represents the ‘mood’ of the time. Their decision is an important one, since florists, fashion designers and other creatives will look to Pantone to inform their choices in the year to come.
Soft, yet Animated
For 2019 Pantone has chosen color 16-1546: Living Coral, calling it “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”
Here at DutchGrown we pride ourselves on not only giving you the best quality bulbs year after year, but also on carrying a collection that is always representative of the latest trends in gardening. Flower bulbs with bright primary colors like yellow and red will never go out of style, but just like the people at Pantone say, coral is the perfect color if you want to create a garden that makes a strong statement, but with a softer and more romantic atmosphere.
If you want your spring garden to reflect the latest trends, we have the perfect flower bulbs for you.
From copper gold to caramel brown from salmon apricot to silvery pink. This ultimate tulip plays with the colors of its own petals and in our opinion it becomes more beautiful and beautiful as it matures.
This fragrant Darwin Hybrid stands stately on its long stem and blooms in full sun or partial shade from early to mid- spring.
Dordogne is ideal for use as a cut flower, bringing depth and softness to any vase or bouquet. Standing at 24 inches, this tulip loves full sun and blooms in mid- to late spring.
A deer-resistant fragrance bomb that will delight all that see her, the Gipsy Queen is the perfect flower to grow in a pot either on your terrace or balcony or indoors in a window sill or on a table.
This Daffodil is something else! The contrast between the creamy white and deep coral leaves is a feast for the eyes, and since it’s a naturalizing flower, it will come back spring after spring after spring.
Precocious has everything: It's deer resistant, has a wonderful fragrance, and will steal the show in any bouquet or vase. Coming up in mid to late spring, it’s the perfect flower bulb to greet the new season and shake off the last vestiges of winter.
