(IB) 'Sonny Boy'

1939, Kirkland

'Sonny Boy' (James Kirkland, R. 1939) IB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-S6M. Kirkland 1939.

SONNY BOY. This is the best of the bunch ['Aztec', 'Magnetawan', 'Conestoga', 'Orillia'], and can best be described as a brighter and larger 'King Midas'. [G. L. Pilkington, "Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 74 (July 1939): 35].

SONNY BOY, both at Nashville and later in my own garden in Roanoke, proved to be one of the finest of the Kirkland introductions to date. [Junius P. Fishburn, "Survey of 1940 Iris Season", A.I.S. Bulletin 78 (July 1940): 48.]
