Top 10 plants that match the Colour of the Year 2024

by | 10 Jan 24 | Garden Design, Opinion | 1 comment

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has compiled a list of plants to correspond with Pantone Colour Institute’s Colour of the Year 2024.

‘Peach Fuzz’ was chosen by Pantone for its Colour of the Year, which the Institute believes “resonates with compassion” and “offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

The colour categorised by Pantone as 13-1023 was found to be a match for colour 26D in the RHS Colour Chart – the tool for documenting plant colour worldwide.

Curators of the RHS Herbarium have matched Pantone Peach Fuzz to a list of plants which can be grown in a range of spaces to assist gardeners planning to incorporate the signature colour.
