When it comes to flowers, we usually associate with all hues except green. But with greenery as the Pantone color of the year, we’ve rounded up the best floras which sport their crowning glory in the gorgeous shade of green!
While Dianthus has long since been cultivated and is even dubbed as the “flower of the gods,” a recently discovered 2014 variety called the “Green Trick” may just be your newest garden favorite!
Forming a spherical striking spiky bulb atop a straight stem, it introduces a unique shape that makes your garden look manicured but is actually a geometrical feat of nature.
Also known as the Mini Penny hydrangea, this is another naturally-forming cluster floral which blooms in the calming shade of, yes, you guessed it, green! While the normal hydrangea range flower in a majestic bouquet size, this mini hydrangea grows in a slightly smaller cluster which makes it perfect as an accent plant which supports your other flowering plants or as a centerpiece in itself.
Bells of Ireland
Ring the bells of good cheer and prosperity for 2017 with the Bells of Ireland in your garden. Coming from the mint family, the Bells is also renowned for its refreshing aroma. Another great thing about these bells is that it’s a hardy annual flower. So bring good luck to your garden and home with this Bells of Ireland.
If the Bells of Ireland bloom upwards, amaranthus daintily spreads downwards, cloaking the area beneath it in idyllic state. If you’re looking for greenery that’s going to save you some space and decorate the often overlooked upper part of your patio, amaranthus is your plant.
As the year of greenery sets in, we hope you have found the best plant to showcase greenery at its finest in your garden!
