From Sass catalog, 1937: WAR EAGLE (Jacob Sass, 1933)- S. vinaceous purple. F. blackish red purple fading to pansy purple. Haft and claw cream with brown stripes on the haft. Bloom measures 7 inches in height. Stems 36 to 40 inches tall, well branched. In effect a rich, glowing deep red toned iris of great size that is, in our opinion, one of the finest red toned irises yet introduced but of distinct effect from other reds. $10.00
From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: WAR EAGLE (J. Sass 1933) M. L. 40 in. Jacob Sass likes Indian names and fine large flowars brave enough to carry them well. This is the largest red we have ever grown, the blooms measuring seven inches in height. The forty inch well branched stalk carries the huge flowers proudly. The color is a rich, deep, glowing red. almost a self, the falls some darker with a black sheen. Took sweepstakes at Sioux City 1936. $10.00.
