Kermit the Frog might have bemoaned being green, but we happen to think it’s pretty great—when it comes to flowers, that is. With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to embrace green blooms (and remind your customers that carrying something green out of your store should keep them safe from pinches!).
In addition to being the go-to color for St. Patrick’s Day, green is also on-trend. According to the 2016-2017 American Floral Trend Forecast, for which FTD Education Team member J. Keith White AIFD provided creative direction, green is predicted to be featured prominently in shades of spring green, sprout, prairie grass and chartreuse in the coming year and beyond.
