From Sass catalog, 1939: ANITRA (H. P. Sass). Although our personal choice as the best light blue is Shining Waters, our catalog wouldnot be complete without Anitra. This is because Shining Waters is slightly tender, while Anitra will grow and bloom any place. However, there is room for both in every garden, for Anitra, though not as tall as the latter, has larger (simply huge) blooms. Good form and habit. Color, light blue. Mid-season. 36-inch. $5.00.
(1948) Frosty blue Anitra is a Purissima seedling with the same cool grace and enameled finish. This tall iris, blooming so late, has an unsuspected substance which belies its delicacy of color. A Critical Evaluation of Older Iris, A.I.S. Bulletin 110:54/July 1948.
