From AIS Bulletin #181 April 1966. Introducing BRIGHT MOON (Marsh '66) M, 30", Sdlg. 63-52. Sib of PIRATE TREASURE X (WAXING MOON X DESERT SONG sdlg.). We consider BRIGHT MOON the most spectacular canary-yellow iris we have ever seen. A very heavily fuffled, huge canary-yellow self (Wilson 2/2) with wide, clean hafted, nearly horizontal, ruffled falls. The big arching standards are extremely ruffled and nearly closed. Long lasting flowers stand the wind very well considering their large size. Because of the 30" stalk, blooms of this stature seem a little crowded, but their bright yellow ruffles make a beautiful sight just the same. A very good grower and increaser that is fertile both ways. HC 1965 $25.00. James Marsh.
