Awaiting original catalog description.
The newest of the Sass pinks is BIRD OF DAWNING and is described by Henry Sass as follows: "Iris seedling No. 42-40 (J. Sass), registered under the name of BIRD OF DAWNING, is a cameo pink self according to Ridgway's Color Chart. The beard is the same color, cameo pink-not tangerine, as in the case of FLORA ZENOR, the Hans Sass iris. It is a total self. In size BIRD OF DAWNING is larger than the new yellow OLA KALA but is slightly smaller than ALBA SUPERBA. The pollen parent of BIRD OF DAWNING, No. 40-152, is a sister seedling of ALBA SUPERBA." [The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 092 (February 1944): 46-47.]
