2013 Colour of the Year: Emerald Green Flowers

Pantone, the globally recognized authority on colour, has declared emerald green as the colour of the year. This rich, luscious and ever so elegant colour will be big this year in weddings, fashion, home decor, and more! The colour, as precious as the gem itself, invokes images of growth, renewal, harmony and prosperity.

From Boston Fern to Xanadu Leaf, there is no shortage of emerald in the floral world! Florists have been incorporating all sorts of greenery and foliage in their floral designs long before Pantone made the colour cool. Along with greenery, florists can use these emerald flowers:
