| From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog,1959: SINA MARIE (C. J. Paul, Salt Lake City, Utah.) Midseason-Late. 38 inches. (Elmohr x Three Oaks.) Perhaps this could best be described as a larger, heavier substanced and richer Elmohr. The color is mulberry-red yet there seems to be an underglow of worm rosy-tan in the falls. The Styles are those giant-sized styles found in the oncocyclus. Stalks are heavy, foliage healthy. SINA MARIE has that superb substance we hope for in modern iris so they withstand all that mother nature can and does ''hand out." For lovers of quality, and especially those who like Wm. Mohr derivatives, we recommend this grand iris-Mr.Paul's finest achievement. No. 49-29. $20.00
| "C. J. Paul of Salt Lake City has been primarily interested in William Mohr and its seedlings. I have introduced his Altamohr and Gray Mohr and this year I am pleased to offer the gorgeous SINA MARIE (Named for Mrs. Paul) which bloomed so beautifully in the Fisher Harris garden in 1954 after the A.I.S. convention here. Mr. Paul tells me this is the result of a cross I suggested might be good in one of my catalogs. While SINA MARIE has plentiful pollen we cannot say for a certainty if it is very fertile. It is not easily podded; however, with some of the very fertile C. G. White Hybrids it may be induced to pod. Those who like Elmohr will be pleased with this iris for it is a larger, heavier substanced, richer color than its illustrious pod parent with a heavy "ram-rod" stalk. Mr. Paul is growing various Oncocyclus and persisting with these difficult parents, and his son Lloyd has embryo-cultured quite a number of seeds for his father." Tell's Iris Gardens
| From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: SINA MARIE (Paul '59) M-L-38". At last a larger, richer, heavier substanced "Elmohr." Color glowing mulberry-red.
