|From Carl Salbach catalog 1947: SABLE (Cook 1938). One of the most popular of the real dark iris. Uniform shade of deepest blue-black violet- almost black, with blue beard. Large blooms well placed on fairly tall stems. Heavy substance and good grower. 36". Mid-season. $1.50.|
|SABLE has also been used in his hybridizing, and he had several seedlings of the same color, one of which, No. 15039, was, in my opinion, the equal of SABLE in color, was of better form, and had a better branched stalk. In discussing the matter with Mr. Cook, he was extremely cautious about introducing a second variety of the SABLE coloring. Several of the judges, however, were of the opinion that a seedling showing decided improvements over its parent should not be discarded. William J. McKee, "Our President Travels", A.I.S. Bulletin 78 (Jul. 1940): 11.|
