I've been trying to rule out 'Indian Chief', and I can't do it.  I don't think that's what it is though (it just looks wrong - especially the flower shape), but it could be it.

Here are some that are at least similar.  'Vert Galant' is very similar, but there are some apparent minor differences in the striping (the yellow striping is narrower toward the edge - but this could vary?).  In 'Bruno' the striped area doesn't seem to reach as far past the beard.  'Dominion' is somewhat similar, but again, it doesn't seem a match, and I think it is (always?) less reddish. 'Coralie' is similar, but the color seems wrong in yours (not "pink" enough and too dark), and again the shape looks wrong.  'Dauntless' is very similar also, but again the striping is off.

There is a whole list of old cultivars of similar coloring, but I haven't found an exact match yet myself.  I have a lot of photos at home that I need to check, and maybe there is something in there that I'm forgetting about.

Hi all, here is a nice, PBF, early to mid season, quite tall - the stalks curve out and up, rosy colored TB that has no name.  I thought it was not Ramses or China Maid.
Mike Unser says it is not:  "Rosy Wings.  It is older than that and not as smoothly colored.  It is also not Mme. Henri Cayeux, The Red Douglas, Alcazar, nor Indian Chief?
Any thoughts?  Thanks, Peggy Harger-Allen, Boone Co. Indiana, zone 5
