'Winter Shadows' ( Mrs. E. A. Peckham and Harold Bent, R. 1940) TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-B1L. 'Sensation' x 'Crusader'. Gage(Sunnyside Gardens) 1941. High Commendation 1940; Bull. A.I.S. 78:4 July 1940.

NOTE: Data concerning introduction dates in the 1949 checklist on p. 259 may be in error. There weren't any introductions of this iris in Fairmount or Gage's catalogs in 1940. There wasn't a 1941 Fairmount catalog on-line to verify it's introduction there, but it was interesting that it wasn't listed in the 1942 catalog. Gage had this listed in his Sunnyside catalog in 1941.
