HP Sass, 1932


From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1936: “S. fine clear yellow; F. red. This is the largest flowered variegata, literally a gigantic crinkly-petaled blossom. It is a seedling of Rameses, the Dykes Medal winner. Stalks are perfectly branched.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “A new type of variegata blend from Hans Sass. Standards yellow with a peachy suffusion, falls very long, of a ruddy tone shading into gold at the edges. Extra late, very tall.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1940: “A magnificent new Iris, with delightfully ruffled standards which look like pure molten metallic bronze, and brilliant red-toned falls, shading to a bronze border to match the standards.”
