Achievements continued with the arrival in 1938 of TIFFANY. (KING TUT X MORNING SPLENDOR) F2, one of the prettiest of this color series. Unusual and altogether charming, this medium-tall plant had good-sized blooms with airy fluting, marked rose-lavender on a deeper yellow background. At its origin the yellow ground plicata section enjoyed a color differentiation that was perhaps more visionary than actual. [Schreiner, Robert (1943). The Evolution of our Yellow Plicatas. American Iris Society Bulletin, 88(January 1943), 60.]

From Sass catalog, 1948: TIFFANY (H. P. Sass, 1938)-A fairly clear yellow plicata. Ground color yellow bordered brown. 36-inch branching stem. 50c
From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1948: TIFFANY (H. Sass) A large flowered yellow plicata. The yellow ground is edged with dots and dashes of rosy-red. The central portion of the falls is a clear yellow. The standards are more completely marked. It always attracts attention. 2-1/2 feet. 50c; 3 fo r $1.25.
Dreer's 1949 catalog notes; "Tiffany. 3 ft. Yellow with rose or deep pink stitching on a yellow background. 60c each; 3 for $1.50; $4.75 per doz."

The stippled plicata, Tiffany, is a weird, magnificent flower of rosy lilac with ruffled standards and huge, hanging folded falls, having a large unmarked area of the creamy ground at the end of the beard. [Lila McCombs, “A Critical Evaluation of Older Irises”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 60.]
