Another sport registered was from Gordon Plough. He introduced the variety Eastmont, a 1/4 arilbred in 1955. It was from Snow Flurry x Capitola and was a violet self. In 1959 he registered (and in 1960 introduced it) a variety named Blue Gate, which he registered as "a sport of Eastmont." It is described as being "greyed blue-violet to buff grey." I grew it for years and then lost it due to flooding. I think a better description would be blue-grey, in fact a smokey blue. It was a great parent, and I wish it were still available.
