The Red Eyed Lilac is soft lilac-grey in colour to the roots on the back, sides and belly. The area around the side of the nose is white and the feet are also white. There may also be white on the chin and sometimes patches of white on the belly. The eyes are red and the ears are flesh coloured.
Many Red Eyed Lilacs develop silvering (a sprinkling of white hairs particularly around the neck) as they get older and the Red Eyed Lilac colouring lightens.
Red Eyed Lilac can be combined with any pattern or coat type to produce Red Eyed Lilac Mottled, Red Eyed Lilac Satin, etc.
