Janet -- Don't despair on breeding from BEST BET.
It doesn't necessarily pass on its dying habit. I have several nice,
vigorous, seedlings from it, including the rebloomer HAUNTING (Winterberry
Gardens 2006) and RANKS OF BLUE, introduced by Winterberry in 2004.

I did use it one year with, and at the time I didn't
know this wasn't a good idea, Best Bet.
First one to bloom was ugly with a capital U...second and third from that
cross haven't bloomed yet. Best Bet tends to bloom out and did for
me, then died...so I don't have great hopes for that cross...but...
Sky Queen is one I'll be using again with other newer ones
to get rebloom...
