From Carl Salbach catalog 1937: ORLOFF (Hans Sass 1937.) A most distinctive new Sass variety, which we are helping to introduce. Probably the most distinctive plicata ever introduced-giving the effect of rich brown with a golden undertone. Its rich clear colors make it easily one of the finest brown toned iris in existence. Personally we rank it with the striking Siegfried, although it is not as large as the latter. Habit and form excellent throughout. Stock limited, not more than one to a customer. Mid-season. 33-inch. $20.00.
From Sass catalog, 1948: ORLOFF (42-34) (H. P. Sass, 1938)-A bright dark blended plicata. Ground color yellow and blended dark red brownish. 38-inch well branched stalk. 50c
Orloff: (H. Sass). Saw it in 1937 and 1938, stalk straight—not so well branched but well balanced, medium sized flower, very unusual in color. A yellow ground marked red-brown plicata, nothing else like it. A connoisseur's flower. Belsley, Ray J. (1939), Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 074(July), 15.
