From AIS Bulletin #174, July 1964. Introducing CHUMASH CHIEF (Walker 1964). Chumash Chief is named after the Indian tribe native to coastal Southern California. The standards of the flower are erect, reminding one of the feathers on the back of the head of an Indian Chief. The coloring is a beautifully smooth chocolate brown self which is remarkably resistant to fading in the Southern California sun. The falls are broad and drooping making the flower visible for a long distance in the garden. The branching is wide and fastigiate with somewhat angular stems 50" tall giving a very graceful effect in the garden. This is the best of the dark brown spurias to date. $15.00. Schreiner.
