From Mission Gardens catalog, 1960: CELESTIAL BLUE (Mission Gardens 1954) Clear light blue self, near to true blue. The frosty sheen of the standards and falls give this iris the sparkle necessary for good garden effect. Another of its fine qualities is its freedom of bloom. A single stalk has produced as many as 17 blossoms,and four blooms open at once on a stalk is not unusual. We have seen as many as seven open at once during favorable weather. Falls are flaring and standards and falls nicely ruffled. Midseason. 36". $3.00
