    Flowers In Fashion — Spring 2010 | Out Here Magazine

    Bold colors, bright accents are new for 2010

    Out Here

    By Jodi Torpey

     

    This year's spring fashions include vibrant color combinations, dynamic new forms, and updated versions of old-fashioned favorites.

    Think we're talking about fabulous designer shoes and handbags? Think again. The latest fashion trends are headed to a flowerbed near you.

    "Flower color interest follows fashion and there are some interesting color combinations happening now," says Renee Shepherd, seed expert, cookbook author, and founder of Renee's Garden, an online seed company in northern California (reneesgarden.com).

    Bold colors with bright accents will steal the show this year, flower fashion insiders say. Gleaming yellow, rosy peach, dusty lavender, and baby blue are some of the must-have colors for the walkway.

    One trend in annuals includes many new varieties of favorite old flowers, such as hollyhocks in frilly forms and ornamental sunflowers in designer colors, Shepherd says. Even zinnias are making a fashionable comeback.

    "Flower color interest follows fashion and there are some interesting color combinations happening now," says Renee Shepherd.

    Two other interesting trends include scented annuals and climbing vines for small spaces. Short vines, such as "Jack & Jill" sweet peas, are perfect for planting in a container with a small trellis.

    If gardeners are unfamiliar with planting flowers from seed, Shepherd suggests starting small with easy-to-grow varieties. Just follow the packet directions, sow the seeds directly in the ground and thin seedlings to give them room to grow.

    Growing flowers from seed isn't only fun, but it's a form of gardening that will never go out of style.

    Jodi Torpey is a master gardener.
