Awaiting original catalog description
FLORA ZENOR (Sass-Salbach 1942) . One of the new iris that was much admired by many of the iris enthusiasts, who visited Mr. Sass's garden last year. An iris that definitely belongs to the pink class. The color is a light shell-pink with very prominent tangerine beard. Blooms of medium size. Standards slightly domed and falls semi-flaring. Well branched stems. Vigorous grower and very free flowering. 38". $25.00. [Carl Salbach Iris Catalog, 1942. Berkeley, California]
 
FLORA ZENOR (40-318). A seedling from DORE x (WAMBLISKA x RAMESES). This was a distinct color break for us. Its pollen parent is unknown. We were plagued with grasshoppers in 1938 when this cross was made, and they ate the paper label off...Color is somewhat similar to Dr. Loomis' "Sea Shell." We are looking forward to our first seedlings of FLORA ZENOR and are wondering what they will be like. It should be possible to get large flowered true pinks from it, and the time should not be too far distant. We are hoping the seedlings from ALBA SUPERBA x FLORA ZENOR will give us white iris with a pink glow. The many seedlings from PRAIRIE SUNSET x FLORA ZENOR may possibly bring us a step closer to true pinks. [Notes from Midwest Breeders, A.I.S. Bulletin 84:51 Jan. 1942.]
