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
