Re: HYB: Matrix for red rebloomers?

I have fairly limited choices for the rebloom parents if I actually want them 
to rebloom here.  So out of what I tried, Matrix did throw some of the best 
seedlings.  In general with one reblooming parent I had the most problems 
getting any size to the bloom, branching often lacked a spur and there was 
very little ruffling.  Surprisingly width was better than I was expecting.

  The Matrix seedlings had much larger flowers than most.  Out of the larger 
crosses, I had several with decent branching and even a few with some 
ruffling.  I was using Matrix primarily because I wanted something that would 
impact color a bit less than the darker selfs might.  Because of course, it 
was Scottish Reel and Wearing Rubies that provided the color.  I would 
recommend a taller parent to cross it with as well.  

I do have Bernice's Legacy, hopefully it will bloom for me.  Not this year 
though by the looks of it.
