| "On to Mr. Fay's in Wihnette, where a real treasure was found in the form of an impressive, heavily-sanded violet and white plicata, since called 'Lady Naomi'. Nearly 40 inches tall, well-branched, this flower was as full bodied and as opulent as could well be imagined." American Iris Society, "Highlights of the Chicago Meeting", A.I.S. Bulletin 78 (Jul. 1940): 6.
| "It seems that I noticed for the first time this year what a really fine plicata Lady Naomi is. It is not the sort of bloom that would appeal to everyone, but besides having a plicata pattern that is very distinctive, it has excellent bloom placement and good plant habits." David R. Kinnish, “Kansas and Missouri Gardens in 1946” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 103, (October 1946): 24.
