Default Opinions on sashing color

Made this quilt top this afternoon and want a small border before adding the larger outside border. Can't decide which I like better of these two. Opinions appreciated. Maybe another color all together.

You know, each actually looks good. The green makes the leaves and foliage show up really well. The orangish color makes the flowers really show up. You can't go wrong with either of these. (I am no help at all, I know... )

I'm drawn to the green. That said, I think both match (agree with what Dina said). But when I sit back and go back and forth between the photos, I'm drawn more to the green.

I always like the combination of green and purple.

Since I'm just not a "border person" I have a hard time liking either one... esp. next to purple. I would have just made more blocks to fill the quilt out to the size wanted, and then bind it. Nothing in this quilt says "I need a border".
