Info on mystery daffodil?

Does anyone have information on a Lemon Delight, supposedly a historic daffodil?

One of my co-workers gave me a nice jonquilla type daffodil years ago.  Said it was very old, from his mother’s family place – a Virginia plantation – and that his mother brought it with her when she married.  Bill is in his late 70’s now, so I would assume this would be from early 1900’s, or even earlier.  Daffseek doesn’t have this daff, or a lot of old 7 Y-Y’s, for that matter.

It blooms the same time as Intrigue and has a lovely light odor.

    That one looks a lot like Trevithian. But is late 1920’s introduction. Keith Kridler
