variegata, some standards marked purple

I met a historic iris today, blooming away in a big clump in Juniper Valley 
Park in Queens, NYC.  Falls were violet; standards a soft, translucent 
yellow that seemed to float upward from the falls.   And some of the 
standards on some of the flowers were marked with the fall color, as if the 
painter had used an inch-wide brush to apply violet to the falls,  then 
lifted it carelessly and let it leave paint on the standards.  A quick look 
at the variegatas at the Historic Iris Preservation Society, combined with 
the description at Argyle Acres, suggests 'Loreley" as the closest 
match.  Are there other bearded iris with splashes of fall color on the 
standards? It didn't resemble "broken color" at all.
