Color of the year.... important or not?
I just came across an interesting thread on the cottage garden forum regarding the color of the year for 2009. A color they call 'mimosa', a bright strong yellow, referred to by one poster as 'school bus yellow'. Chosen to inspire hope and reassurance.
The question I have is whether any of you use 'fashion' as a guide to choosing what you are going to plant. If so, what publications/websites do you use or do you rely on your florists to make requests? Also, please advise what percentage of your overall planting you dedicate to the 'fashion colors' Thanks in advance. Kat
