(1943) No. 4020 is a very distinct blend of lavender and old gold, of lovely form, quite ruffled, almost lacy at the edges, with the rich lavender of the falls trimmed with the gold of the standards. Mrs. Whiting's notes showed that it is the one Dr. Everett called a "glorified sunset." This, too, might be named as so many visitors have admired it. [A.I.S. Bulletin 91:28/Oct 1943]
"Lavender and Gold Lace (Whiting '46) was looking very attractive. I have admired this unusual Iris in the Whiting garden for a long time and am glad to see it introduced. The combination of golden standards and lavender falls with a definite edge of frilly gold lives up to its name." [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): 42.]
