Chuck  --  It depends on how much space you have and how many years you're content to devote to the process, if you want to try for a line of well-formed ever-blooming plants.  If you think it's a worthwhile goal, this seedling seems like a starting point.   --  Griff

Here is a photo of a rebloming SDB.

I'm not sure what to do with this seedling. It is from a bee pod of Forever Blue. Obviously  pollen parent was an aphylla, which were in bloom rasonably close.

It has been in constant bloom for about two months, and still going strong.

Flower is very much aphylla, and not all that pretty and has bad form.  But it has three nice branches, and 2-3 flowers per flowering point. So 7-10 nicely spaced and sequential  flowers. Reblooms at height of 15-18" This bud count and flower sequence certainly contributes to it long period in flower.  New stalks coming up now, so will proably be, for all practical purposes, an everbloomer.

But, that flower is so ugly.

 Lots of SDB seedlings in rebloom. About 30 total. A couple of nice flowers. Last Wed had 18 seedlings in bloom at once.

So, What to do with this thing.
