Things rebloom here when it gets over 100.  Night time lows only get down to the high 70s and low 80s during summer rebloom, must be something else.  I don't think cold is too much of a factor in a lot of rebloomers, more like growing conditions, sunlight, moisture (or lack of it) soil ph. etc.  Most rebloom that I have observed happens when a plant that is prone to rebloom reaches the right rhizome size to bloom.......there is probably more to it but that seems to be the unifying factor, at least here anyway.  On that note..... we have a ton of stalks coming on in the seedling beds in addition to 5 of next years intros currently blooming.  L-66 is the mother of all reblooming parents here.  Just about every cross out of it in the seedling bed has at least one plant blooming right now or one sending up a stalk.  It doesn't matter what it is crossed with, it produces rebloom offspring.  Should have a L-66 x Romantic Evening blooming next week, hope it is nice.
Thanks for the input

Hey Mike
      I find her lovely!   Nice deep falls, I'd give it a chance here.   Do any of the Schreiners neglectas do ok for you?  I'm always amazed that you have things rebloom at 85 degrees,  nothing here has ever wanted to rebloom in anything over 80 degrees.   Must be our night temps that are warmer than yours?   Anyway, enjoy, you lucky  dog.     Have to content myself with daylillies, petunias, iceplant, shasta daisies here, and roses of course.   The lovely waft of fragrance from gardenias just about done.
