A flower drum or hua gu is a type of double-skinned Chinese hand drum.[1]

The instrument appears in the plot of the 2002 rewrite of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Flower Drum Song, but not in the 1958 original, which took its name from the bestselling 1957 novel The Flower Drum Song on which the musical was very loosely based.
