From Iris Test Garden catalog, 1955: MASKED BALL. (Buss, 1949). M. A most unusual and attractive plicata that has recevied high praise in the midwest. At a distance it gives the impression of a reverse amoena. The closely domed standards are heavily flushed and veined with deep rich purple while the semiflaring falls of pure white are bordered with the same purple as the standards. Good substanced flowers, strong, wellbranched stalks. H.M., 1952. $3.00.
From Edenwald Gardens catalog, 1957: MASKED BALL (W. E. Buss '49) M.32". Unusual white-ground plicata, suggesting a reverse amoena. Standards are heavily striated, appearing almost solidly colored deep blue-purple. This color also borders the glossy white falls. Beard is dull yellow tipped blue. Form domed and semi-flaring; size, medium. Substance, stalk and branching all satisfactory. Pictured on page 2. $1.00.
