Crazy for coral in 2019 - Pantone Colour of the Year

BBC Gardeners' World Live

Few have their finger more on the colour pulse than Pantone. Pantone is a internationally recognised color matching system, utilizing numbers to identifying colours, and this is the 20th year of their hotly anticipated 'Colour of the Year'.

Living Coral has been announced as this year's colour - "an animating and life-affirming hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge."

The Floral Marquee and Plant Village at BBC Gardeners’ World Live are a veritable rainbow of colour, but here we’ve selected just a few of our favourite coral-coloured plants from exhibitors that you’ll find at the 2019 Show.
