CULT:Accuracy of Registered Bloom Season

DUSKY CHALLENGER is listed as ML for its bloom season, and, here, I 
would say that the bloom is probably in the early days of ML for it 
appears so many times in shows, which are scheduled ordinarly for M.
Whenever it blooms here, it never burns around the edges like some 
that are dark and earlier (BEFORE THE STORM, MIDNIGHT OIL 
and even EPICENTER).  I was afraid to order  VILLAIN because it was 
listed as L, but for me it is consistently M.  SWING AND SWAY had me 
thinking I had a rogue because it is VE (sometimes the first TB to 
bloom), not M as listed in the Checklist and is an azure blue self 
and not a white with blue highlights.  So blooms  vary from garden to 
garden and climate to climate.  It's those registered as EML that 
bother me.  You don't know what their bloom season is until you try 
try them.  For me,  they usually turn out too early and get frosted 
or too late and get cooked.  I definitely avoid  buying introductions 
labeled  VE, VVE, VL and VVL until I find them to be successful in 
somebody else's garden nearby.
