■(TB) 'Euphony'

1929, Sass

'Euphony' (Hans Peter Sass, 1929). TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class S4M.

See below:


From Sass catalog, 1937: EUPHONY (H. P. Sass, 1929). S Conical, ruffled. Mustard yellow tipped with Chaemois. F the same overlaid vinaceous. Medium to large flowers on 36-inch stems, the distant effect being a rich, deep yellow. Exceptionally vigorous and free blooming. 25c
EUPHONY. The Sass Brothers have given us, of late years, a series of irises of the Ophelia type, ranging in tone from deep yellow-browns to pale yellow-pinks. EUPHONY is one of the most beautiful and distinct of all this series. The standards are mustard yellow, waved and fluted, stained with light brown at the tips. Falls are squarely held, mustard yellow, flushed with blue in the central portion and overlaid soft brown. This is a lovely and bright color harmony, and the great freedom of bloom of this variety makes it a heavy favorite. Each $1.50; three for $3.75; ten, $10.00. Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932.
