That's the thing working with a lot of these eastern rebloomers - they
aren't at all homogeneous for form, & neither are most of the available
modern formed things we try to cross them with. So it seems like it
takes luck and powerful intuition to get something this good in the
first generation.

That, or IDing the few that both produce seedlings that grow well in our
climate <and> almost always upgrade the form. Like TREASURED, & so far,
FOGBOUND.

And that's just form, not including early (recessive?) rebloom. Get
both in one kid - wow.

Sure hope this one does at least late cycle rebloom.
