From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1949: BANDED BEAUTY (H. P. Sass 1948) No. 18-42 (TIFFANY X SIEGFRIED) X (128— 34 X ORLOFF) Midseason to late. 36 to 40 inches. A new offering from that master breeder, Hans P. Sass. This fascinating yellow plicata comes from a long line of intensive breeding. (See Chart. Bull. 106. n. 31.) It seems to have everything-- size, form, rich color, distinct plieata pattern, along with good height and branching. The ground color is clear yellow. The red brown markings make a strikingly pleasing pattern. The falls are so heavily marked and dotted along the edges as to give a decided banded effect. It has great distinction and personality. Very effective in the garden because of its pure clean coloring and most attractive as a specimen stalk. $15.00.
