Unlike what the title of this post indicates, this garden does not include any orchids.  Instead it celebrates perennials that showcase Pantone's 2014 color of the year: radiant orchid.  My illustration below doesn't even come close to these flower's amazing vibrant purplish-pink color, so I also created a Pinterest board, where you could see their true colors (as true as a photograph expresses anyway!). All of these plants grow in US zone five.  What would you include in your radiant orchid garden?

If you'd like a digital file of this image to print out for yourself, this one is available for purchase in my Etsy shop (along with several others).
