Prairie Sunset

H. P. Sass, R. 1936 / I. 1939

TB 36″ MLa S9L

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1940: “All that has been said about this gorgeous Sass creation is true, but it simply has to be seen to be realized. The blendings of peach, apricot, rose, copper and gold are so well done that one is at a loss to describe it in a manner that might be conceived in the mind of the listener. A fine big flower, and the color will absolutely stun you when you first see it, and every time you see it!”

(Sandalwood X Amitola), HM 1937, AM 1941, Dykes Medal 1943.
