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.  --  Griff

Hi Margie,
    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...
