Classic Blue - Pantone Colour of the Year 2020
There are few who can claim to have their finger more on the colour pulse than Pantone. For 2020, Pantone's colour of the year is Classic Blue. They cite that the calm, confidence, and connection of this enduring blue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.
To celebrate this 'enduring blue', we've compiled a list of our favourite blue blooms from BBC Gardeners' World Live over the years.
