New Sweet Spot ‘Calypso’ Decorator rose boosts a great combination of Pantone’s Spring 2014 top colors picks!

The blooms of Blue Storm agapanthus match Violet Tulip – the second-most-popular color chosen by designers nationwide for next spring. And if you look closely, each petal is striped down the middle with the Number One color – ‘Dazzling Blue.’   As Blue Storm blossoms mature, the color fades to No. 7 color pick, ‘Placid Blue.’

Tesselaar’s brand-new Sweet Spot line of decorator roses (available in 2014) features three of Pantone’s top color picks for 2014: No. 4’s ‘Celosia Orange’ No. 5’s ‘Freesia Yellow’ and No. 6’s ‘Cayenne’.  What’s even better is that all four of the line’s flower color combos change in their variation of shades over time.  It’s like a season-long kaleidoscope of color!

And finally, you can see Pantone colors in the leaves and blooms of Tropicanna® cannas. The original Tropicanna cannas’ rainbow-striped leaves boast striations of Freesia Yellow and Celosia Orange, with the latter echoed in tangerine-colored blooms. The flowers and leaf striping of Tropicanna Gold, meanwhile, are the shade of Freesia Yellow, with flowers accented a perfect Celosia Orange. And Tropicanna Black’s purplish-black leaves get an extra boost of drama from the spicy, reddish-orange flowers the color of Cayenne.

Mother Nature, after all, is the best designer when it comes to color, but we think our plants wear them particularly well.
