| "CARD OF THANKS has what Les calls sea lavender-blue standards, and tan falls with a webbing effect on them. A child of the great SONI CE, this one shows promise of being just as good as that variety." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday.” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society #208 (January 1973): 14-15.]
