2012 is here and that means new trends & colors for the flower world.  According to the color of the year is a bright Tangerine Tango PANTONE # 17-1463.  This color is sure to brighten up any home and works perfectly with lots of orange gerberas, bright lilies and sun-kissed roses.  Tangerine Tango also compliments lots of floral greens.
