It is the lilac season, it does not last long but the fragrant bloom is splendid. But what color is lilac anyway? The lilac flowers actually bloom in seven official colors: white, violet, blue, lavender, pink, magenta, and purple, with many shades of each, but the color called lilac belongs to the violet shades and is darker than lavender. Lilac is both a cool and warm color since it is made of a mix of blue and red. Lilac flowers are associated with the first emotion of love. Like lavender, lilac symbolizes feminity, grace, and elegance. As found in nature, It pairs beautifully with dark greens. For a springy lilac harmony, combine shades of lilac with greens, plums, and mauve.
