From Sass catalog, 1948: OLA KALA (J. Sass, 1943)- A very dark yellow self. Light cadmium according to Ridgway. Medium large ruffled flowers on 36-inch well branched stem. $4.00
From Schreiner's Iris Lover's catalog for 1947: "This is one of the best deep yellows. So intensely yellow it is almost on the orange side. Rich in color, brilliant in effect. A flaring, lightly ruffled flower on tall stem withstanding weather to a very great degree. It is an iris people talk about and this is high praise indeed as we have an abundance of good yellow iris and when one stands out it must be good."
Having heard Ola Kala pronounced a half-dozen different ways, we wrote concerning the matter to Henry Sass, son of the late Jacob Sass who created the new Dykes medalist. Says Henry: "The correct pronunciation is 'OH-Ia Ka-LAH' (accent on the 'OH' and 'LAH' syllables). Mrs. M. A. Tinley, Council Bluffs, Iowa, suggested this name. She heard it frequently from some Greek shoeshine boys in Council Bluffs. As I understand it, Ola Kala means the same to the Greeks as OKay to us." [AIS Bulletin 110: 6 (July 1948).]
