When you get Fall cyclic rebloors from Immortality, is it from a cross of Im X oncer or a cross of Im with a cyclic rebloomer?
The rebloom genetics as I can so far determine, is that Fall cyclic rebloomers pass on cyclic rebloom as a dominant trait. thus Im would not be passing on any rebloom genetics contributing to Fall cyclic rebloom. It could pass on some secondary chacteristics , such as plant vigour, to enable the seeedling to grow vigorously enough to reach plant maturity in time to produce Fall cyclic rebloom. Fall Cyclic genes would be comming from Fall Cyclic rebloomer. Summer Rebloom genes are recessive so would have to match up with other summer rebloom genes, or as I call them, direct bloom genes.
My crosses with Im would suggest that it doesn't have cyclic rebloom genes.

I wonder. I've gotten fall cyclic rebloomers from IMM. Only a few.
<it would seem to be a Fall Cyclic rebloomer. so genetics don't seem to
match up with Immortality's genetics.>
finally got DSL
