From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: STORMY SKIES (Plough 1953) M. 38 in. (Arctic x Tobacco Road). A most unusual blend of smoky gray and buff. The flowers are very large with extremely broad petals and slightly ruffled falls. A flush of violet just under the full yellow beard gives much brilliance to the flower. Lovely. H. C. 1952. 10.00.
