Ultra violet, declared the “Colour of The Year” by the Pantone Colour Institute, is a rich and intense shade of purple that is considered “provocative, versatile, dramatic, original and ingenious”. It is an exotic hue that conveys deep emotions and is very eye-catching. And the fact that ultra violet is predominant in nature in the form of some beautiful flower species like Clematis, Hyacinth and Iris, makes it a favorite for weddings, parties and special occasions. Whether you incorporate this color in bouquets or centerpieces or trails, it will always stand out.
We have created a colour board of flowers inspired by Pantone’s chosen shade of 2018 and put together some ideas to use them.
