Comments It makes single flowers in a bright yellow, dressed with prominent red stamens. The plant has glossy olive green foliage, is vigorous, and disease-resistant. Its pollen parent Captain Thomas imparted a large collection of great characteristics: shrubby growth, an ability to produce many flowers, and an almost ironclad constitution.

BTW: Sunny June is frequently confused with the more popular Golden Wings, another yellow single bred by Lammerts. It would appear that Sunny June's flowers render a brighter yellow and display red stamens earlier in flower development. Golden Wings tends to open a paler, buttery shade and with yellow stamens that gain reddish color as the flower fades to cream. The single flowers of Golden Wings stretch out to nearly five inches.
