The Pantone Color Institute describes the hue as “a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body and soul,” which is perfect for gardeners hoping to find rejuvenation in their green spaces. “In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Experts chose the 2024 color in response to a need for nurturing, empathy and compassion in today’s world, and a desire to recalibrate our priorities to align with our internal values, focusing on health, wellbeing and cherishing what’s special. The hue can inspire your customers to think about the healing nature of their own unique gardens with options ranging from roses to yarrow to impatiens.
