'Quivera' (Jacob Sass, 1928). TB, R. 1927). TB. 30-36". Midseason bloom, Color Class-S2L. J. Sass 1928. HM 1931.
Reported catalog references: Wayman 1928; Treholme 1931; Sass-H.P. 1932; Kellogg 1932; Fairmount 1932; Riverview 1938; Sass 1937; Stoner 1938; Wassenberg 1938.
|From Treholme Gardens catalog 1931: QUIVERA (Sass, J. 1928) E.85, G.82, E. to M. S., 36". A buff and pink plicata blend. A most fascinating flower of large size, good form and substance on tall, well-branched stalks. While it has been observed only one season, yet it is so attractive that I am including it believing that it will rate much higher under more favorable conditions. It is in a color class with Lona, Jubilee and King Karl, but is of different form, with more yellow, and is an improvement in other respects.|
|From Sass catalog, 1937: QUIVERA (Jacob Sass, 1932)- A mingling of buff, pink, yellow, orange and brown, difficult to describe, but of unique beauty. S. buff pink; F. orange vinaceous striped pink vinaceous, yellow glow at the center with brown striped hafts and bright yellow beard. Blooms of medium size. 30 inches. Honorable Mention, 1932. 25c|
