From Sass catalog, 1949: GOLDEN AGE (J. Sass, 1939)-Flowers medium to large. Color darkest yellow self. 42 inches, low branching stem. 50c
Towering above everything in the field was Jacob Sass' new yellow, GOLDEN AGE, on a 48-inch stalk. We could not help wondering what it would be in an average year. The flower is very large, of rounded form with frilled edges, the color, a rich medium yellow. [Lucy W. Tinley, "Midwest Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 75 (December 1939): 19.]
