From Hill’s Iris & Peony Farm, ca 1932: THURATUS (H. P. Sass 1931) Immense, tall, very rich dark purple. Different from and a wonderfully fine companion for the improved Baldwin. 25.00
From Sass catalog, 1937: THURATUS (H. P. Sass)- One of the darkest of all irises and makes a striking garden group. A rather long flower with drooping falls, a blackish purple self, showing rich crimson tones when the sun shines through it. 38 to 40 inches. A real beauty. 35c
Thuratus: (H. Sass). To my mind one of the best dark purples from every standpoint. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 19.]
