From Sass catalog, 1937: BLUE MONARCH (Jacob Sass, 1933)--Bluish violet self. Color tone is a clear light blue. Large flower on 45-inch stems, low branching. $1.00.
BLUE MONARCH (J. Sass, 1933). A large flowered deep blue violet self-giving the effect of clear blue. Tall and well-branched. Mabel Carey Tobie, p58 AIS Bulletin #59 October 1935 Iris notes on Mrs. Thomas Nesmith's collection.
From 1937 Schreiner's catalog: BLUE DANUBE (J. Sass 1933) ML. 44". A finely branched specimen in the light blue color class. The blooms are large and full and of a beautifully clear tone of blue. Because of its easy growth, and splendid height this iris is steadily gaining adherents. Few California originations are as hardy. $1.50
BLUE MONARCH. A beautifully ruffled flower seemingly having enough good points to warrant it an A.M. Why has this beautiful production of Jacob Sass not received an A.M. before this? The S. are domed, the F. flare, the branching is fine. [Mrs. Herman E. Lewis, "Varietal Notes 1938", A.I.S. Bulletin 72 (January 1939): 9.]
