10 peach plants inspired by Pantone's peach fuzz

Peach Fuzz is the “signature” color of 2024. Defined by Pantone as a “quietly sophisticated” shade that falls between pink and orange on the color wheel, it has gentle depth and a “contemporary vibe” that evokes modern elegance.

As with any COTY ad, attention often turns to interiors and easy ways to decorate with this iconic color at home – but this soft peach can also make an impression outdoors.

The bright, warm blooms of peach and apricot are sure to bring a sense of joy to the garden, whether used to fill a container, flower beds or flower arrangements indoors. The good news: There is no shortage of peach tones in the garden.

Peach Fuzz is found matching color 26D in the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) color chart – a tool for documenting the colors of plants around the world. So the curators of the RHS Herbarium (housed at RHS Wisley) matched Pantone's Peach Fuzz with a list of plants that can be grown in a range of spaces, large and small. Here are the results…

1. Chrysanthemum 'Enbi Salmon Wedding'
