This chapter analyses newer and brighter hues of green. The gray-greens of the date palms, often considered old-fashioned, are being replaced by brighter hues of green as symbols of progress or of changing hegemonies. The chapter describes different conditions in Bahrain and the region with changing values of green. For one, advertisements often show more greenery than a project can deliver. Residents' testimonies indicate that a major value of any development comes from the greenness that provides contrast to the indigenous desert landscape. The Bahrain Gardening Club reflects an enduring interest in all things green and beautiful, and the organizers of the Riffa Views Bahrain International Garden Show have sponsored an annual garden design competition among Bahraini schools called The Riffa Views Eden Challenge.
