■(TB) 'Marisha'

1939, Sass

'Marisha' (Jacob Sass/Whiting, R. 1938) TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class S7L. 'Amitola' x unknown. Maple Valley 1939.

See below:


From Maple Valley catalog 1939: MARISHA (J. Sass-Whiting) M. L. 32 in. We picked this lovely pink blend from the Jacob Sass seedlings the first year it bloomed, and it has been greatly admired and coveted in our garden for two years. It is a beautiful Iris of soft, creamy yellow with standards heavily flushed with clear, light, pure pink and falls overlaid with the same pink tone. In effect it is a fresh and appealing pink enhanced by the. soft yellow center. The blooms are large and pleasingly formed with exceptional lasting qualities. The stalk is well branched and the plants very hardy and vigorous in growth. Because of its rather late season of bloom it has been missed by some of our visitors who were most anxious to see it. Several who saw it ordered plants for this season's delivery. We were unable to get a good color picture so will try to get one this year for our next catalog. A good stock enables us to introduce it at a popular price. $10.00.
