From Schreiners Iris catalog, 1936: GOLDEN TREASURE. An exquisite new cream iris with a charm that eludes both the camera (page 8), texture and in the subtle infusion of golden light thruout the center of the flower. The beard is bright orange. We would have named this iris "Goldenheart", had the name been available, so appropriately does this name suggest the effect of a glowing inward light characteristic of this flower. One well-known authority said of Golden Treasure, "It's practically the ultimate in its class." The flower has excellent substance, fine form and size, and a well-branched stem. Height is 36-40 inches. Once this iris has been seen, we predict its popularity will become widespread. Price, each $20.00.
From BIS YB 1938: "It has a strikingly pleasing contrast between creamy standards. and falls and the clean gold at the haft and the gold beard: 40 inches tall; three laterals, the longest 6-1/2 ins. Size 5 ins by 6 ins." M. E. Douglas, USA
Golden Treasure: (Schreiner). Large well balanced flowers and stalk—form most desirable—cream yellow with center lighted with gold. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.]
[Cooley's Garden catalog, 1946]: Solid deep cream, but with an outpouring of rich, golden orange all about the central portion of the flower. Tall, perfectly branched, very floriferous, it will stand out in a planting of hundreds of varieties. HM AIS, 1936; AM, 1938. Stock very limited. Each 50c; 3 for $1.25.
