| From Sass catalog, 1937: AUTUMN QUEEN (H. P. Sass, 1926)-An everblooming white iris of the intermediate type which has a record of blooming every month from April to November. Flower of good size and quality. 25c
| Observations from my garden in Reston, VA (Zone 6B) make me conclude that this should be re-classed as SDB rather than MDB. Measurement of the flower stem on 4/26/2013 was 11" in height. -- DavidPotembski - 26 Apr 2013
| AUTUMN QUEEN is the most persistent continuous rebloomer. It gives bloom here in Kansas every month from early spring to late fall. In addition to this fine reblooming habit, it is the top white dwarf in quality. Here it has poor curling stamens entirely lacking in pollen and gives seed very rarely, although seed from it is reported in other sections. I can't help thinking that if our hybridists would be as persistent in efforts to cross this as many are with WILLIAM MOHR, we might get from it a much needed midget white and perhaps other small whites of high quality.
