From Sass catalog, 1948: PRAIRIE SUNSET (Hans Sass, 1939)- Flowers large and of heavy substance. Color as to Ridgeway Onion Skin Pink and Vinaceous Tawny, with some lustre added. 36-ineh stems, fair branching. (Dykes Medal, 1943). $1.50
PRAIRIE SUNSET - Our next visit, some ten days later, took us straight to Midwest Gardens for a call on Prairie Sunset. I wondered whether I should recognize it after a year had passed, but though it stood in another place among many seedlings, there was no mistaking it. It still held its own-tops over all. It was close to forty inches-not quite so tall as last year. At that time I had examined it most painstakingly and made careful notes. There was, I recall, a very faint line of purple at the edge of the standards and a greenish tinge to the midrib. Neither of those points was visible this year. The flower was a smooth, satiny shining gold with a pinkish flush, but very little pink. If it were not for the shining quality the color might be a little dull, but it is pure gold-not tan. The appearance of heavy substance gives its look of superiority. [Lucy W. Tinley, "Midwest Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 75 (December 1939): 18.]
