From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing MOON DRUMMER (Newhard '73). (Tealwood x Blue Brilliant). The Siberian iris that received 26 HC votes last year. Radical departure in form-the style crests do not turn up at their end but lie flat on the falls. The falls are extremely wide and give the flowers a full rounded effect. The flowers are deep violet blue. Vigorous plants. HC '72. $25.00. Palette Gardens.
