Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2013: Emerald Green

(By Diana Roy)

Green is in!  The color of nature, expressing environmental concern, good health and renewal, green is comforting and relaxing, refreshing and revitalizing.  Green sings of the spring and nature’s awakening.  A great ‘neutral’ color, green can be combined with all other flower colors – it’s probably why most flowers have green stems and leaves, they go with any color bloom.

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world”.

Yes, Emerald is a great color, and it happens to be my birthstone, I wear it proudly each and every day.  However, green comes in many wonderful shades, and I love them all.  Take a look at some of my favorite ‘green’ flowers and foliages!
