Indian Chief
Ayres, 1929

TB 35" EM R7M, Maroon bitone. Translucent standards are wire-edged fall color. Falls are deep and velvety. Vigorous grower, will take quite a bit of shade and still bloom.

From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: "Well named, for while classed as one of our superior reds, it carries a bronzy overcast, being regarded by some as a red blend. At any rate, Indian Chief is one of the most popular of the newer things, and a credit to Dr. Ayres, its introducer. The velvety falls are deep blood-red, blended with bronze, and the standards are considerably lighter in tone. A large flower, quite tall, and very well branched."
