Hearing a colour called "Lilac" absolutely confuses me. Granted my
job is at a plant nursery and i'm used to explaining to people every
day that there are multiple varieties of lilac and that the old
fashioned purple are a different colour than the dwarf korean lilac,
etc, etc...Still though, I have NEVER heard of a colour called
"lilac"
That's immensely confusing. *shrug*
