| From Sass catalog, 1937: OSSAR (24-34) (H. P. Sass, 1937)-This is a glowing, blackish red self. Not very tall, 32 inches, but low branching. There are many buds and often 3 flowers open on a stem. Flowers are of medium size of good shape and substance. $10.00
| OSSAR (H. Sass) is a satisfying bit of color. It is almost a self with the deep, brown-red of the falls extending to the tip of the silky standards. It is a child of 30-40 and while it hardly meets the matchless color of its parent, it fortunately has better substance in the standards. Later, Henry showed me a long line of seedlings with this very smooth, dark red in both standards and falls. It has taken several generations to bring the set this far and it is still in the making.
