From Supplement To The Comprehensive Checklist of Aril and Arilbred Iris by Sharon McAllister, April 2000: GREEN MOHR AB (Tell Muhlestein, R. 1949). Sdlg #NIA.TB, tall, ML. William Mohr X Chosen. AIS Color Class: Y3M (yellow standards, blue-toned falls). '76 CL: Silvery grey flushed greenish yellow; lavender flush at center of F. Tell: "Strong greenish-chartreuse self - the falls having a light lavender flush when first opened. Full Mohr shape." 1951. Notes: registered as a TB but qualified as an OB- in both systems. Ref: AIS '49, p. 119; ASI'76, p. 40.
From Muhlestein catalog 1951: Green Mohr has the same form as Lady Mohr. The color is a strong green-chartreuse. The Falls have a flush of lavender below the beard when it first opens, but this fades after the first day. The green color is especially noticeable in bud and when first open; the color pales after the first day. Somewhat fertile pod parent. Exhibition Certificate 1950.
From Mrs. Ed Conrad (Idaho): Tell's Green Mohr was in bloom and if hardy enough everywhere will probably cause a sensation when widely distributed. Personally, I care little for a green flower, but it caused quite a flurry at the iris show in Salt Lake City, receiving the cup as best seedling in the show. "Way Beyond the Hills of Idaho”--The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 121, (April 1951): 36.
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963 GREEN MOHR (Muhlestein '51) ML-40". An appealing color. A silvery grey flushed with greenish yellow. Lavender flush center of falls.
