(TB) 'Ute Chief'

1920, Farr

'Ute Chief' No registration information

The 1939 AIS Checklist entry for this iris says that this is a synonym for 'Alcazar'. Farr introduced this iris in 1920 from his catalog, but also listed and sold 'Alcazar' as well. Did Farr not register this iris? He may not have but many iris sellers during the 1920's sold Ute Chief and was listed in their catalogs.
