From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1932: “The Sass Brothers have given us, of late years, a series of irises of the Ophelia type, ranging in tone from deep yellow-browns to pale yellow-pinks. Euphony is one of the most beautiful and distinct of all this series. The standards are mustard yellow, waved and fluted, stained with light brown at the tips. Falls are squarely held, mustard yellow, flushed with blue in the central portion and overlaid soft brown. This is a lovely and bright color harmony, and the great freedom of bloom of this variety makes it a heavy favorite. See color reproduction on cover.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: cv description as 1932 catalog.

From Oakhurst Gardens catalog for 1939: “A profuse bloomer and a beauty in Mustard Yellow, soft brown, pink and blue. Waved petals. Small, but attractive flowers. 36 in.”

From Robert Wayman catalog of 1939: 36″ One of the best of the copper blends. S – beautifully ruffled, pure copper; F – old gold flushed with soft violet. A real beauty.”
