"PENCIL SKETCH (Plough) has to grow on you. A kook that reminds us of old APRIL SHOWERS.
" [Joe Ghio, “The Unusual Becomes the Usual,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 206
(July 1972): 10.]
"PENCIL SKETCH is a greyed yellow with lines radiating from the center of the flower as if someone had taken a pencil and drawn the lines. An oddity that I liked because it is so different." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 208
(January 1973): 13.]
