, R. 1923). IB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-S5L.
| From Glen Road Iris Garden catalog, 1924: JUBILEE (Sass 1923, Sturt. 1924) — A ruffled, heavy textured, flower with peach tinted standards, the haft and edge of the flaring white falls peppered. 30 in. 10.00. In his crossing Mr. Sass has struck a vein of vari-colored plicatas that shows a marked advance in breeding. Mercedes or the variegata plicatas of M. Denis might be considered as prototypes, but this new strain now represented by Aksarben, Midwest, Lona and Jubilee reveals an even greater range of coloring. The plants are vigorous and very free flowering and the full, ruffled flowers possess splendid substance and form. Aksarben is actually velvety. Midwest is rose hued, and I hope that later I may introduce others of even more novel coloring. In my trial bed they have attracted much comment.
| From Sarah Toedt’s Springtime Gardens catalog, 1929: JUBILEE— Peach pink standards. Creamy falls stippled with blended colors, cinnamon brown predominating.
| From Sam Carpenter Garden catalog, 1927: JUBILEE (Sass 1923) A ruffled heavy textured flower with peach tinted standards, the haft and edge of the flaring white falls peppered. 30 inches. $3.00.
| From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: JUBILEE (Sass 1923). A distinct and beautiful Plicata of buff tone. S. and F. light buff, heavily margined with flecks of dark copper. A finished flower of fine form that is much admired by all who see it. $5.00 each.
