From Longfield iris Farm catalog, 1955: JUNE SUNLIGHT (McCormick 1953). H.M. 1953. A.I.S. This handsome yellow Iris is a Light Cadmium self with flaring falls like smooth deep yellow velvet. The hafts are clean and free from veining. The style arms, the standards and the falls are all of the same rich coloring. The heavy striking beards are Orange. There is no fading to mar the smooth even coloring. Stamens carry ample pollen. 36 inches tall. Late flowering, hence the name. $10.00.
June Sunlight will be introduced next year. It is a brilliant buttercup yellow, very smooth and nicely formed with wide falls and domed standards. The beard is of the same clear buttercup yellow as the rest of the flower. It is out of seedlings from a cross of Spun Gold and Treasure Island, and is a good performer as I saw nine bloom stalks from a single rhizome this year. It was developed by Bob McCormick, of Columbus, Ohio. [Waters, Don (1952). Random Comment, American Iris Society Bulletin 128(January 1953), 51.]
