From Schreiner’s Iris catalog, 1952: NEW LOOK (P. R. Johnson 1952) EM. 33". New Look is the reddest Wm. Mohr seedling yet produced-a rich mulberry reel with a very broad beard of golden brown. The standards are held rigidly upright, enabling one to look into the heart of the flower and marvel at the expansive style arms, fully twice as large as those of a bearded Iris. The wonderfully exquisite tracery of veins and dots of Oncocyclus derivation creates in the center of this flower a ·pattern more fascinating than the center of a Hibiscus! $10.00.
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: NEW LOOK (P. R. Johnson '52) E-M 33" (Wm. Mohr X probably Bruno). Tall good looking Mohr of reddish purple with intricate Oncolike veining. $3.50.
