Awaiting original catalog description.
SONATINE (Tompkins 1946) Blend of lilac and pinkish tones. Grandchild of Ormohr. $10.00. [Tell's Iris Gardens Catalog, 1947:19]
I didn't like Sonatine because I found it dull and uninteresting, though, as he [Tompkins] says, it may be good for breeding. [Reynolds, Mrs. Leo F., Tennessee (1949). Coming Events Cast Their Shadows, American Iris Society Bulletin 116(January 1950), 27.]
