I quite understand your frustration with Dusky Challenger. This is the first
time in three years I've had decent blooms (and they are lovely). The only
reason they look so good is that this is the latest coolest season for many
years and it has been overcast most days. We're still not much warmer than
September (start of Spring) and we're supposedly into summer.
I've just had Mountain Majesty flowering majestically and I hate to think
what this will be like in a normal or hot spring

> Praises of Dusky Challenger make me envious.  I had one that I babied for
five years.  I never got a decent flower from it, and the clump wasn't much
either.  Problem:  It always bloomed late, so that the buds cooked before
they opened.  It bloomed out last year, and I will not replace it.
