From Carl Salbach catalog, 1940: SOQUEL (Reinelt 1940). (Wm. Mohr x Sunol). An iris of the Wm. Mohr type, but larger and somewhat lighter in color. Foliage is heavier and taller and it is a better grower. Blooms are perfectly formed, but it is not an especially free bloomer. The color is a medium dark violet heavily veined manganese violet. Produces pollen freely, but we have not been able to get many seedlings from it. Increases rapidly. Late. 24". $2.50.
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: SOQUEL (Reinelt '40) M 26" (Wm. Mohr X Sunol). A large deep lavender Mohr with even more intensely colored veins. Sets seed. $.75
