From AIS Bulletin #277 April 1990 Introducing STRIPED MOONBEAM (Don Shepard) AB-18"-M. This is what we look for!! Something different!! The lemon yellow bloom is domed and round in form. It has narrow cream-white striping throughout the entire bloom. The grey-green foliage is narrow with thin pure white striping all through the leaf. The growth is compact and vigorous. The varigated foliage has stayed true since '85 germination. (Afghanistan X Lemon Custard). $25.00. Shepard Iris Garden.
