From Mission Gardens 1963: ”A clear medium yellow iris with a small lighter area near the tip of the beard. The beard is bright yellow. The falls flare gracefully, the standards and falls are beautifully ruffled. The stems are straight of medium height with exceptionally good branching and flower placement, qualities which are often lacking in yellow iris. The beautiful ruffling of standards and falls give Celestial Sunlight a special charm and personality that should please every iris lover.”

From Cooley’s Iris Catalog 1974: “Clear medium yellow with a small lighter area near the tip of the bright yellow beard. Both standards and falls are beautifully ruffled. Stems are straight and the large blossoms are well spaced on good branches. An iris of great charm and personality.”
