The "whenever " rebloomers  are a line of rebloomers that I developed. They can  start to rebloom about a week after they finish spring bloom, and will contiue periodically until frost.

These include Forever Blue, Forever  Violet, Blueberry Tart, Summer Recall, Autumn Jester , Wizzard Of Hope .

One year I had a bloom every day on Forever Blue from early May until very early Nov.  They also rebloom in Canadian Ag zone 3, 2 or close to 2 in USA. This means places like Winnipeg Manitoba.

As they don't  seem to require vernalization (winter cold period)  they just may cope with marginal winter situations, and bloom, where others don't.

Hi Chuck,  I don't know which SDBs are considered 'whenever' bloomers.  We don't see many here at all.  They grow fairly well but do not bloom but once every few years.

No, I don't have the fridge space.

Mike has this combination on his TBs, so you got  that.

As for SDB and MDB in So. California, probably the only way to do it is grow in pots and  put in a fridge for a month.  But who has  enough fridge space for that?

Some of the "Whenever "  reblooming SDB may manage to  bloom and survive  in your climate.  More of these coming in the future.

Have you tried any of the "Whenever" rebloomers there?

Chuck,  Magnificent!  Now when can you get this flower combo onto an IB, BB, or TB so it will grow here in So.Cal., the land without cold enough winters??  Do you think that ice cubes would work?

A SDB seedling that opened today.

Actually, it is more intense in person, if you can believe.  Ring is actually a bit darker, close to brown. So much contrast camera can't capture it all.

I certaing wasn't expecting this from this cross.  Clever  X a bitone  purple-rose  luminata plicata seedling with red beard.
