Salmon as a color is based on the coloring of salmon, fish, so there are orange and pink hues in the color. It’s a gorgeously soft and enticing color and is considered to have romantic overtones.
Luckily for the numerous fans of salmon pink as a choice for floral bouquets and as a color for the garden, many flower species have a salmon variety; ranunculus, dahlias, garden roses, and peonies.
You may want to add some salmon shades to your garden or patio or you may be considering a floral color scheme for a special occasion.
Salmon Flowers can coordinate well with creams and whites to create a gentle color scheme, or you can mix salmon hues with flowers that blend with the orange or pink tones of the salmon. Let your imagination swim free like a salmon!.
First, though, let’s feast our eyes on some beautiful Salmon Flowers.
Coral Peach Ranunculus
The salmon tones in this simply beautiful flower cannot help but lure the eye. The petals look like parchment dipped in the gentlest of hues and the multiple layers of the petals give the bloom a ruffled appearance that is sumptuous.
Geranium Giant Salmon Princess
The blooms of this variety of Geranium are inordinately large and come in clusters that are bountiful.
The blooms are also weather-resistant, and this makes them a good choice for patios and gardens. The soft salmon tones work well with the plant’s rich green foliage.
Vuvuzela | Salmon Garden Rose
Just look at the wonderful colors on these blooms! The central petals have a peachy tone to them and the outer petals are pinker.
The combination of the colors creates a multi-layered salmon. Vuvuzela is a salmon and peach garden rose that has a big bloom that opens fully.
The subtle fragrance is an added bonus. Superb in floral arrangements, bouquets, wedding centerpieces, and garden showstoppers!
Dahlia Summer Flame
This utterly beautiful blossom, in the softest shades of salmon, apricot and tangerine cannot help but set your heart aflame!
The blooms play with the light and make their surroundings just that little bit more wondrous.
Salmon Rose With Light Eye Gerbera (Gerbera Jamesonii)
Gerberas are African Daisies and they are divine. The way the petals grow is uniform and provides texture; the central petals create a kind of ruff around the yellow center (hence the Yellow Eye of the name).
The salmon rose coloring is soothing and very attractive.
Campfire Flame Bidens Hybrid
In the darker range of salmon, this plant has gorgeous shades of scarlet, dusky pink, and yellow blooms in the summer. In spring and fall, the colors change to a muted orange.
This plant growing in your garden cannot help but cheer up the surroundings.
Geranium Grandeur Classic Salmon Picotee
A rather elegant-looking shade of salmon pink, these double bloom flowers are ideal for hanging baskets and containers because they are compact.
The mossy green foliage color and salmon pink blooms work exceedingly well together.
Ez Rider Deep Salmon Petunia
Genetically shorter than traditional Petunias, the bold, deep salmon coloring of this Petunia gives it some wow factor. The flowers have a simple and delicate design.
Amsterdam Salmon Rose
This delightful rose appears to change color in response to changes in the light. Sometimes it appears salmon pink, at other times closer to orange, but always very pretty.
Begonia Superba Salmon
Favoring the orange shades of salmon, this Begonia really is superb and will brighten up the garden.
The enormous double flowers grow abundantly but the compactness of the blooms means they can really jazz up small gardens, balconies, or window boxes.
They’re not limited to small gardens, though, because any size garden will benefit from having these beauties about.
Salmon Sun-Orchid (Thelymitra Rubra)
A perennial herb with fleshy egg-shaped tubers, this Sun Orchid produces a bloom with subtly veined salmon-pink petals and an orange-yellow center.
The stem may be green, pink, or reddish.
High Blooming Salmon Rose
This High Booming Salmon Rose has a salmon pink color with rosy tones. Such a lovely, warm color is a pleasure to behold.
Duo Salmon Sweet Pea (Lathyrus Odoratus)
One look at this beauty and you have to admit it has some panache.
The two shades of salmon are clearly defined and the delicate petals are so like butterfly wings you could quite easily imagine a group of gorgeous butterflies has settled on the stems.
Festive Fireworks Mini Amaryllis
Like a firework in full bloom, you can see why this flower is named after fireworks. The mini-blooms have thinner petals and a more delicate texture than standard Amaryllis.
The salmon-orange petals, with a red center and a lime-green back, are the gentlest of hues.
Lupinus Salmon Star
With coppery orange blooms that change shade all along with the bloom cluster, it’s easy to see why this is a protected variety (protected by EU PBR 22731 and US Plant Patent law PP18,718. Commercial propagation is illegal without a license).
They bring to mind globular candy floss and fun days at the fair.
Iris Germanica Pretty Print (Iridaceae)
The Iris is a scintillatingly beautiful plant and this salmon variety is no exception. The flowers are exotic and in subtle hues of salmon pink that are, quite simply, endearing.
Twisted Orange Fringed Tulips
There’s perhaps too much yellow here for the bloom to be described as truly salmon, but the outer petals do have the salmon coloring.
The overall effect of the coloring and the ruffled edges of the petals is lovely.
Begonia Daffodil Salmon
With bright orange-salmon flowers in long, cup-shaped trumpets, this is definitely a bloom that will get attention.
The Begonia Narcissiflora Group Daffodil Salmon prefers a shadier position in the garden. This is good because the incandescent blooms soon light up the space!
This Begonia is great in pots, hanging baskets, beds, and borders. Importantly, pollinators love the trumpet blooms.
Schlumbergera Orange-Flowered Christmas Cactus
A house plant that will get your guests talking. The subtle hues of the soft salmon pink blooms are eye-catching. They resemble exotic birds perched or just about to take off.
It’s called the Christmas Cactus because the blooms last from November through to the end of January. The fleshy green foliage is also great.
High And Magic Yellow And Red Rose
The orange tones alongside the burnt red and pink tones in these roses create an overall salmon effect.
Chaenomeles X Superba Salmon Horizon, Flowering Quince, Japanese Quince, Japonica
A hardy shrub with orange-pink cup-shaped flowers and glossy green foliage, this plant is a stunner.
On top of all its beauty, it also produces large golden fruits that are aromatic and edible.
Hot Shot Orange Calla Lily Flower
A muted salmon pink on such an elegantly shaped flower is quite sublime. Certainly, this is a rather sophisticated bloom.
Amaryllis ‘Rilona’ Salmon Pink (Hippeastrum ‘Rilona’)
What a subtle and soothing color this Amaryllis has!
It has two stems, producing six to eight flowers. The plant can grow in a pot, a dish, or as a ‘dry bulb’ without soil or water; which makes it an utterly amazing plant.
Zinnia Elegans Benary’s Giant Salmon Rose
Zinnias are splendid because the blooms are regular, dense, and abundant. In these wonderful salmon tones, this plant will draw the eye with wonder.
The salmon tone is deeper in the central petals, becoming more muted in the outer petals.
Datura is sometimes called Moonflower or Devil’s Trumpet. It has large, trumpet-shaped blossoms, which can come in salmon shades.
A night-blooming plant, Daturas are highly poisonous, so ensure children and pets are safe.
Dahlia Linda’s Baby
Small and exquisitely formed, these blooms are a pastel peachy pink with just a touch of the palest lilac hue.
They are exquisitely well-formed in a geometrical pattern that is dense and inspires awe at the perfection of Mother Nature.
