From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: PURISSAMOHR. (E. Weidner, 1952). M.L. Something new and sensational in the Iris world. A pure white Onco-hybrid that is a good grower, and thoroughly hardy. The large flowers are very heavy substanced with closely domed standards, and very broad flaring falls. The whole bloom is delightfully ruffled, and there are no haft markings or venations to detract from the clear purity of color. The beard is golden tan terminating in a point that is so characteristic of Onco-breds. H.C., A.I.S., 1951. H.M., A.I.S., 1952: 40inches. $12.09
From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: PURISSAMOHR (Weidner 1952) M. L. 40 in. (Wm. Mohr x Purissima). A pure white oncobred of very large size. As it bloomed for us last year it did not show many of the Mohr characteristics but was as fine as any of the regular tall bearded whites. H. M. 1952. 7.50.
