From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1940: SUNGOLD (Milliken) The earliest of the large-Rowered yellows and one of the most popular irises we have introduced. The flowers are a medium shade of bright yellow and are simply enormous in size with wide flaring falls of heavy firm substance. The stems are strong and tall and the plant is extremely vigorous, increasing rapidly so that a single plant soon makes a large clump that blooms freely over an unusually long period of time. Sungold is an iris of such quality and boldness that in our display garden last season it was selected by many visitors as the finest in our entire collection. 3-1/2 feet. $3.50; 3 for $7.50.
