"WINNER'S CIRCLE (Plough) was the first thing to catch my eye at the Tomkins garden. Blackish violet with a white circle on the falls makes this one easy to identify and makes it one you will want to grow." [Ron Mullin, “Memories of the Convention,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 206 (July 1972): 22.]
Received 28 votes among Favorite Guest Irises at Portland. [“Favorite Guest Irises at Portland,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 206 (July 1972): 41.]
 
"I immediately looked for WINNER'S CIRCLE and found it just beginning to bloom those deep violet black flowers with perfect circles of white in the falls. While this pretty flower is not the ultimate in form, it has good enough form to warrant praise, considering its unusual coloring." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 208 (January 1973): 13.]
