From Sass catalog, 1956: SKY CRYSTAL (H. E. Sass, 1955) (50-152) Pale Blue self to blue white. Yellow beard with blue influence in underpart of beard. Perhaps our best. $25.00
From Fleur De Lis catalog, 1956: SKY CRYSTAL (Sass 1955) M. 38 in. (from a long line of Sdlgs. from Snow King, involving Moonlit Sea and Lake Huron) x Snosheen. Our favorite of the Sass varieties, this has immense, broad petaled flowers of beautiful semi-flaring form done in a pale blue-white. The substance is very heavy and the finish is gardenia like. A real beauty. H. M.1955. 25.00
