Navigating Orange

Articles: Navigating Orange

One of the least popular colors on the spectrum, orange is bold, exotic, and maybe a little bit dangerous.

From “A Gardener Comes to Terms with Orange:
Orange, the marriage of red and yellow, maintains both the primal force of red and the happy-go-lucky, child-like brightness of yellow.

... The adventurous Christopher Lloyd, who considered orange “challenging,” advised using the hue boldly or not at all. “It is a waste to mingle it with red,” he warned, recommending pink, purple, and blue, its complement, as orange’s best garden betrothals.
