See below:



From Sass catalog, 1952: IVORY PETALS (48-206) (H E Sass, 1952)-Cream Buff self with slight bluish cast through center of flower and a slight blue blotch around beard, giving general effect of a smoky cream. 36-inch stem. $10.00
From Fleur De Lis catalog, 1956: IVORY PETALS (Sass 1952) M. L 38 in. (((J.Cayeux x Hans Sass, J. Cayeux type sdlg.) x (Seigfried x Dore)) x (Dore x White Sib to F. Zenor)) x (Blue Shimmer x Hans Sass, red and yellow plicata from R. Pollock)). Very large, broad petaled flowers of fine form and heavy substance, this is quite different from any other ivory or cream. The color is a deep, smokey toned ivory that has a solid undertone of pale chartreuse. We found its parentage so unusual and interesting that we have listed it in full for we think you will be as intrigued by its breeding possibilities as we were. It should be very interesting if used with plicatas, creams, yellows, pinks and blends and quite possibly blues. $2.00
