From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing CARD OF THANKS. (Imaret X Soni Ce). AR. 24-26". E. Here is a colorful C.G. White type arilbred. Standards are of sea-lavender-blue veined deeper. Falls are medium soft tan with webbing or netting effect across the hafts, miniature dots of purple in same area; purple beard. HC '71. $15.00. Les Peterson.
"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.]
