(TB) 'Rain Shadow'

1971, Plough

'Rain Shadow' (Gordon Plough, R. 1970). Seedling# 65-20-64. TB, 32" (81 cm), Midseason late bloom. Standards flax blue (642/2), ruffled; styles same with light violet stripe; falls victoria violet (738), fluted and ruffled; gentian blue beard. 'Smart Set' X 'Ecstatic Night'. Eden Road 1971.

"Very ruffled flowers with blue standards and violet falls make RAIN SHADOW one of Gordon's finest introductions to date. This one did well in gardens in four states I visited." [Ron Mullin, “Memories of the Convention,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 206 (July 1972): 22.]

"RAIN SHADOW has to be one of the best ever introduced by Gordon. A deep violet-blue neglecta with many ruffles, a nice stalk, and other good qualities make this one of the best in a class with many contenders." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 208 (January 1973): 13.]
