Search: heather plant
Why: In Hey, Nostradamus! by Douglas Coupland, Part 3 is narrated by Heather. Stores like J. Crew always name things "heather gray" or "heather flannel" or even "heather graphite pewter."
The More You Know: Turns out: in clothing, "heather" refers to interwoven yarns of mixed colors that produce muted greyish shades with flecks of color.
