(Hans Peter Sass
, R. 1935) TB. Late bloom. Color Class-S9D. Seedling x 'Amitola'
| From Maple Valley Catalog 1939: MATULA (H. P. Sass I939) M. L. 39 in. By special permission from Mr. H. P. Sass we are helping to introduce this wonderful new red and gold blend which he is listing for the first time this year. It has been very outstanding both here and in his garden for the past two years. Last year we were fortunate enough to get a very good color him of it and this year a reproduction from it graces the front of our catalog. We hope it will give you some idea of its extraordinary beauty. The color of the flower is magnificent, a brilliant medley of rich red and orange gold. The broad, well domed standards are of apricot buff flushed with Congo pink. the wide and semi-flaring tails are of deep Indian Lake, edged with buff. The edges of all the petals are delicately crimped after the manner of Midwest Gem, its full sister. This unique. crimped edge is something absolutely new in iris and it not only adds charm but substance and lasting qualities to the flower. The stalks are tall and beautifully branched, the plants very vigorous and hardy, blooming freely each year. $25.00.
