Lady Mohr is blooming in my garden now also.  It was sent with the collection that my mother ordered from Couleys back in 1946.  I’m sure it was an extra, a gift.  Someone told me that it was listed in Couleys catalog that year for $50.  I doubt that she ever paid more than 50 cents for an iris, and nether or us liked it very well.  It was touted as the first green iris.  Its color is very much like Thornbird.  Of course, I will keep it always for sentimental reasons.

OB- type AB, historic.  Salbach 43.  Older now and lacking the flamboyant,
intense colors of some other ABs, it has the very good quality of durability
and reliable bloom.  I've had 3 pods in the years it's been here - totaling
7 seeds without any subsequent germination.  I keep trying.  After all,
other people have been successful.  Although most registered descendents
stem from a TB pollen parent and my on pods were via AB pollen.
