From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1954: SASS SOUVENIR. An H. P. Sass Seedling (ELSA SASS X MOONRAY). Midseason to late, 36 inches. One of the loveliest irises that we hare ever had in our garden. Its clear, clean yellow tones are delightfully fresh and inviting, the faint greenish tinge cools the yellow without dulling it. It is pure primrose yellow by the Wilson chart with slightly deeper haft and lighter center fall. The flowers are lightly ruffled with closed standards and sprightly flaring falls; in spite of their translucent quality they withstand heat, wind and rain amazingly well. $5.00.
