One of the most abundant pigments in a plant is Chlorophyll a, which absorbs the red and blue colors of the spectrum. It reflects the green light that makes plants appear green.

Chlorophyll mainly absorbs violet, blue and red light, reflecting lighter blue, green and yellow light. Blue light helps leaves to grow, while red light together with blue light helps flowers to bloom. You can check out http://growblu.com/ to learn more.

Chlorophyll absorbs red/orange and violet the best. It reflects most green light, which is why plants appear green to our eyes.
