From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1955: RED SHADOWS (Sanford Babson '55). An exciting new RED! Ridgeway says, in a dull sort of way, that it is Bordeaux with an influence of Carmine, but it is a bright, dark red self, velvety, smooth at the haft, and perfectly formed. Conical standards and broad, semi-flaring falls .Beautifully branched stems rise from vigorous, fast increasing plants. $20.00
