Sorry, Mike, but the Barr BRONZE BEAUTY was in the Check List since
1929....and takes precedence.  This regelia should have been called BRONZE
BEAUTY REGELIA or something to distinguish it.  If we start allowing two
different cultivars to bear the same name why have a registration system at
all? And if the regelia "Bronze Beauty" is indeed out of I. hoogiana, it
could not have originated earlier than after 1913, when I. hoogiana was first
collected by Graeber in Turkestan.   Clarence Mahan in VA
