'Challenger' is the most wonderful historic I have. it has small spidery blooms that will get no larger than 4 1/2 to 5 inches across, but will once established have scapes no shorter than 60" tall. she is red up close but from a distance she is more of a purple. the first year she blooms, as in my 2 year old plant that just opened, she will not have real prominent midribs only fine ones but you can always distinguish her, by her incredibly tall height scapes, and golden center throat. Although the pic on this page with the green appearing throat I also belive is an accurate pic as sometimes in direct sunlight the green stem beneath the center of the throat can bleed through and although the throat is golden yellow it can appear greenish in photos especially on larger older plant blooms.
