In the above design.....flowers of many colors, shades, sizes and shapes are placed together. This wonderful combination of fuschia Stock, blue Iris, yellow Freesia, white Love in the mist, and peach Calycinia is lively and very festive. At the peak of summer's bounty, a polychromatic bouquet brims with interest and drama. With polychromatic colors...anything goes really...however, the trick seems to be: When going with vivid colors stick with vivid flowers and when going with pastels stay with pastel blooms. Otherwise, have fun and mix it up!

In floral design, any arrangement that blends five or more unrelated colors, and is pleasing to the eye is called Polychromatic. This is not a true color harmony but, is often used in floral arrangements.  Care must be taken to avoid a polychromatic design becoming a "hodgepodge".  A good polychromatic design also uses texture and a variety of forms to create a dramatic display.  The most common example of a polychromatic floral design is an arrangement of garden flowers.
