From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: PRINCE LOHENGRIN (Mohr 1923). This new Seedling, a cross between Juniata and Lohengrin, is introduced as an improved Lohengrin. It grows nearly a foot taller, has better placed flowers, and is slightly pinker in color. Perfectly hardy everywhere. $1.00 each.
From Campos Altos Iris Garden 1929 catalog: "After thorough trial we are introducing this as an improved Lohengrin. In adjacent planting this season its stems averaged nearly a foot higher. The flowers were not crowded together as in Lohengrin, and were slightly pinker than that variety. Of course it can be grown anywhere." -- Nancy McDonald - 2015-09-29
