"Sunray, on a single stalk, was a bright attractive yellow with paler areas on the falls and a bright orange beard. It has the same life and sparkle as Mr. Hall's older 'Buttercup Lane', but this one has flaring form and tough substance along with the ruffling. If it grows up and performs well it should be popular. "John Dolman, Jr. (Pennsylvania), “From Aldan to Walden and Points North, Varieties Noted in 1951,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 16.
From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: SUNRAY (Hall 1950) Each 2.00. Ruffled light yellow with a sheen rarely apparent in yellow iris. Flowers of excellent substance come on well branched 3 foot stems. Fast increaser. HM AIS 1951.
