"Gypsy Rose (Whiting '46) is a most distinctive iris, very tall; and while the flower is large it is most beautifully formed with wide petals, and has heavy substance and widely branching stalks to carry the large blooms. The color is a rich, warm hellebore red with a copper infusion, and a touch of blue at the tip of the beard. It is a magnificent iris." 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): 41.
