Yes, but celadine (without the n) is a sort of nondescript pale to light 
green, very "in" in the trendy clothing catalogs this spring.  The other 
trendy colors are chartreuse and black.  EEEg.  I'm sure glad iris don't come 
in chartreuse.  Yet.

For example, what colour is celadine?

Celandine (with an n) is a common buttercup-like plant with a pale
yellow flower, common in the South of England.
