Pantone Colour of the Year: Peach Fuzz
Matching varieties for this unique colour
Pantone recently launched the Colour of the Year 2024: PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz! “PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It’s a velvety gentle peach thone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and sole”, says PANTONE®.
Pantone is a company that publishes colour codes and announces a colour as its annual colour each year, based on fashion, social events, cinema, and more. As HilverdaFlorist, we are looking forward to a year of Peach Fuzz and are happy to share a selection of our colour matching varieties with you.
Standard Carnation Peach Wonder
It looks like Peach Wonder was made especially for this trend! However, this flower has been part of the Standard Carnation range for some time. The large, ruffled flowers with multiple petals create depth in this unique colour. Like the colour, the classic yet modern Carnations themselves effortlessly bridge the gap between youthful and timeless. Exactly as Pantone intended with the colour.
Dianthus Sunflor® Bling Bling
Modest yet extravagant is what Dianthus Sunflor® Bling Bling is all about. Bling Bling, a potted Dianthus variety, offers the Peach Fuzz colour for both indoor and outdoor use. Sunflor® is a versatile Dianthus collection that contains many different colours, flower shapes and plant types. Sunflor® flowers from spring until late autumn, tolerates temperatures until -5°C and has compact growing habits with a short crop time.
Standard Gerbera Pre Extase
The colour range within the classic, daisy-like Gerbera flowers is endless. Of course, Peach Fuzz is therefore not to be missed here. Pre Extase seamlessly matches this gorgeous shade. “An appealing peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz inspires belonging, recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing, conjuring up an air of calm, offering us a space to be, feel, and heal and to flourish from”, says Laurie Pressman, Pantone®.
Echinacea MOOODZ® Motivation
Besides the well-loved bold and bright colours, Echinacea also comes in softer tones. Echinacea MOOODZ® Motivation is one such variety that nicely matches the Peach Fuzz colour! Ideal to mix and match with other (lighter) shades, a valuable addition to any assortment!
