From Milliken catalog, 1940: MOZO (C. G. White). With medium to large flowers on a 30-inch stem, Mozo is certainly outstanding in this group of gem-like irises. The ground color of the flower is creamy yellow and both standards and falls are strikingly veined in bronze red. The falls are darker than the standards due to closer veining. Parentage is (Sofarana x Susiana) x Yellow. M. Early. $.75; 3 for $2.00
From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1942: MOZO (White 1938) E. An "Onco" hybrid that is very outstanding in this group of interesting irises. The ground color is creamy yellow with veins of bronze and red on both standards and falls. 26 in. $.75
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: MOZO (White '38) E 30" (Sofarana X susiana) X (Yellow Mitchell Seedling) We are indebted to information recorded in an early Milliken Catalog for the above parentage. Sofarana is, we believe, generally considered a form or variation of susiana. Whether this be true or not, Mozo is half Oncocyclus and looks it! The medium sized flower is of creamy yellow veined in bronze-red on both standards and falls. We know of no recorded offspring but this easily grown beauty is sufficient unto itself. For us it is usually the first Onco-bred to bloom. $.75
