From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1952: DELTA TREASURE (Lenora Rutledge Mathews) A treasure indeed is this lovely yellow Abbeville-type, which looks like a huge Japanese iris at first sight. Heavily textured, with over-lapping petals, and very often having three flowers open at the same time-what more could anyone wish. Perfect in every respect. 2-1/2 ft. $12.50.
From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: DELTA TREASURE. Each 3.00. Large wide petaled Abbeville type of enchanting buffy yellow. A strong grower about 2-1/2 feet in height.
