From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1951: CELESTAR (C. Larsen '50). M. (((Los Angeles) x (Don Juan x Titan)) x (San Francisco)) x Aldura))) x (Tiffany). White with flush of lavender-purple on one side of the falls. The buds are flushed with this same color, giving them an unusual effect. To retain the color the flowers should be picked as soon as open-otherwise the color fades away leaving a white flower. Crossed with Cool Lemonade gave some splendid, well branched, lemon-yellows of quality. H.C. '49. $10.00.
From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: CELESTAR (Larsen 1950) M. 36 in. (((Los Angeles) x (Don Juan x Titan)) x (San Francisco)) x Aldura))) x (Tiffany). A large, semi-flaring white with a flush of lavender on one side of the falls that fades away after opening, leaving the blooms a dusty white. Odd. H. C. 1949. 1.00.
