Ultraviolet Rules: Pantone’s Color of 2018
Midnight Prairieblues False Indigo plant with text that says,

Ultraviolet, huh?

This special and unusual shade of purple is Pantone's (the color company) color of the year. A beautiful color that's heavy on blue undertones with a cosmic, most-perfect-purple-sunset-ever kind of appeal.
