From Carl Salbach catalog 1936: Mohrson. A sensational production or Mr. C. G. White. A seedling of William Mohr which received Honorable Mention by the A. I. S. in its first season of introduction. As huge as William Mohr but 40 inches tall in established clumps, this noteworthy variety has been described as "A great swashbuckling cavalier clad in silken tapestry." Color deeper than that of William Mohr, being blackish red-violet. Solid coloring, somewhat redder than the remarkable Meldoric, but carrying larger and bolder flowers. Foliage definitely "pogon", and bears pollen and therefore useful for breeding. Mid-season. $7.50.
´╗┐MOHRSON (C. G . White) For many years iris hybridizers throughout the country tried, without results, to produce a William Mohr seedling. Mr. C. G. White was the first to meet with success in this endeavor, and has given us Mohrson. Being a cross of William Mohr by a pogon iris, Mohrson is but one-fourth oncocyclus. It is a charming and unusual iris, more vigorous than its parent, and showing unmistakably some of the desired oncocyclus characteristics. The flowers are simply enormous, with standards a rich, clear, deep violet with a cockled and varnished surface and ruffled edges. The color in the falls is effected by close veins and is a beautiful shade of violet. 2 1/2 feet. $1.00; 3 for $2.50. Milliken Iris Gardens, 1944.
