       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.
