"Bagdad (Whiting '46) is a Garden Glory done in yellow and metallic lustre. Its form and smoothness are very reminiscent of the smooth finish of Garden Glory. The standards are an unusual tone of waxy yellow and the falls so thickly overlaid with a brassy sheen they seem almost velvety. The substance is outstanding and no amount of bad weather seems to mar its perfect finish." [David R. Kinnish, O. S. B., (Kansas), “In Kansas, Missouri and Illinois,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 107, “Iris Ramblings” (October 1947): 40.]
