From Carl Salbach catalog 1943: ELMOHR <Dr. P. A. Loomis 1942). Beautiful new iris of immense size and of very rich coloring. A seedling of Wm. Mohr that is hardy in any climate. The color is a lively shade of reddish mulberry. Standards are large and well cupped, falls broad and round and of heavy texture. Well-branched stems. One of the finest recent introductions. Mid-season. 36". $17.
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: ELMOHR (Loomis '42) M 34" (Wm. Mohr X H 22: a red seedling). This Dykes Medal winner was a sensation when first seen and well grown specimens will still stop traffic. Unique in shape, the color lies between reddish mulberry and a glowing dahlia purple. While the veins are of the same color, they have a prominence which gives added character to this handsome 'must'. Readily sets seed and occasionally has potent pollen. Dyke's Medal '45. $.75
