x yellow seedling# 2384-5.
| From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1948: SPRING SUNSHINE (Milliken) This new light yellow iris is stately and sumptuous. It has the largest flowers of any variety which we have grown but they are shapely and of good substance. The mid-ribs of the standards are exceptionally strong. The color is smooth and the serration of the petals gives the flower a pleasing finish. The stalks are strong and very well branched so that the flowers do not crowd. The plant is very vigorous. 4 feet. See color illustration on front cover. $25.00.
| Milliken's Spring Sunshine is a lovely addition to this color class...a very tall, well branched pale yellow. The flower is large and well balanced, with good substance. The haft, of a deeper shade of yellow, is clean; the beard is white. [Mathews, Mrs. W. R. (1949). Tall Beardeds in Louisiana, American Iris Society Bulletin 116(January 1950), 60.]
