From Treholme Gardens catalog 1928: KALOS (Sass 1924) E. 87 G. 85 32" M. S. A darker rose flushed flower than Caroline E. Stringer. Similar in effect to Dream but of a different shape. A flower of good form and substance. 5.00.
Kalos, A Sass Iris, was first offered by the introducer, Mrs. William Crawford, last fall. Mrs. Crawford's descripton was so alluring I almost ordered it in the fall, and later was sorry I had not. So I ordered in the spring, planting a nice strong root the last of March. Despite unfavorable weather, it made a good growth and sent up a nice stalk of bloom. This is an exquisate rose tinted white flower, beautifully ruffled and of good size. It is evidently of great vigor, as this spring planted root produced three pods filled with seed and the plant seems to be making a fine growth. Extra fine. E. G. L., (Ind.). The Flower Grower, December 1925, Vol. 12, No.12, p. 497.
