| From Sass catalog, 1937: BLUE MONARCH (Jacob Sass, 1933)--Bluish violet self. Color tone is a clear light blue. Large flower on 45-inch stems, low branching. $1.00.
| BLUE MONARCH (J. Sass, 1933). A large flowered deep blue violet self-giving the effect of clear blue. Tall and well-branched. Mabel Carey Tobie, p58 AIS Bulletin #59 October 1935 Iris notes on Mrs. Thomas Nesmith's collection.
| BLUE MONARCH. A beautifully ruffled flower seemingly having enough good points to warrant it an A.M. Why has this beautiful production of Jacob Sass not received an A.M. before this? The S. are domed, the F. flare, the branching is fine. [Mrs. Herman E. Lewis, "Varietal Notes 1938", A.I.S. Bulletin 72 (January 1939): 9.]
