Terra Nova Nurseries Announces Plant List for 2023 Pantone Color of the Year

Terra Nova Nurseries has released its annual Pantone Color of the Year plant pairings list to commemorate the recently announced Pantone 18-1750 Viva Magenta for 2023. The Terra Nova roundup of best-of-breeding varieties showcases a range of hues and tones that coordinate with the vim and vigor of Viva Magenta.

Terra Nova’s breeding and marketing teams created the Color of the Year plant list based upon the fact that the chosen varieties share the common themes of the color, including being rooted in nature, descending from the red family and displaying an electrifying and a boundless shade that is manifested as a stand-out statement.

The union between Viva Magenta and Terra Nova’s Color of the Year plant roster displays harmony, in that, Pantone selected the Color of the Year by observing a heightened appreciation of nature represented by countless lifestyle trends, including what Pantone refers to as “…more living things used in people’s homes, such as plants, florals, living walls, and restorative outdoor spaces.”

“Viva Magenta is described as brave and fearless, a pulsating color with an exuberance that promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration that writes a new narrative,” says Dan Heims, president of Terra Nova Nurseries. “Terra Nova Nurseries’ Color of the Year plant list exudes the color’s same characteristic boldness that is full of wit and inclusive of all.”

Finishing growers and retailers can offer Terra Nova’s Pantone Color of the Year-inspired plants with the colors of magenta that offer forms of pinks and purples with integrated reds, crimson, cherry, light ruby, and other correlating shades.
