Journal de la Société Nationale d'Horticulture de France, 1920, 4e série, Tome XXI, p. 168.
From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: DALILA (Denis 1914) 8.0. A charming little flower of clear, pleasing coloring, and desirable habits. S. creamy yellow; F. plum-red. Vigorous and free flowering. 24 inches. The small size of the flowers has undoubtedly cut the rating of this variety. To us, the clear coloring and fine form more than make up for the lack of size. There is a place for small-flowered Irises, and Dalila is just right. 50 cts. each; $1.25 for 3; $4.00 per doz.
