It may come as no surprise that we’re a big fan of the colour pink. Pink reminds us of a crisp glass of rosé, cherry blossom trees and candyfloss clouds. Pink works for almost every occasion. It’s the colour of romance, compassion, love, and femininity, among many other wonderful things.
Summer is a great time to introduce pink flowers to your home to add some variety and brightness. From pale pink peonies to scorching hot fuchsias, we’re here to give you the low down on the perfect pink blooms.
Why is pink so popular?
2023 is all about the colour pink. We’ve seen it sweep the runway and dominate recent fashion trends, such as Barbicore. You can’t go wrong with pink, especially when Pantone chooses Viva Magenta as the colour of the year for 2023. (Read more about this here). Love it or hate it, pink is here to stay. So why not jump on the bandwagon before it’s too late…
What do pink flowers represent?
Our associations with the colour pink vary between cultures and times. Believe it or not, pink was once a popular colour for boys, too. An equivalent to the colour red, pink was considered genderless and even masculine up until the early twentieth century.
In Eastern cultures, the colour pink has many different connotations. It’s considered a masculine colour in Japan, as a symbol of the slain samurai. In Korea, pink represents trust, and in India, it’s associated with welcome and hospitality.
Pink flowers convey just about any kind of message, from congratulations and gratitude to love and affection. Lighter shades of pink are often associated with friendship and joy, whereas deeper hues are linked to passion and romance. Pink flowers are for everyone and anyone, regardless of gender!
