When talking about floral design, finding the right shade of purple is like picking pretty and prettier. Lighter shades will give you a soft and sweet appearance while the darker shades make a more daring and bold statement. There are several flowers that have magnificent purple hues; light lavenders include roses, hydrangea and dendrobium orchids while richer more true shades include Lisianthus, purple tulips and purple macaras. Purple is the kind of stand out color that your eye is just drawn to, especially in a floral arrangement. It is also my favorite color (if you couldn't tell) and I just wanted to spend some writing time giving purple the appreciation it deserves!
