Re: HYB:REB:Collective wisdom-1
you may wish to include the older Sheba's Queen. Hardy plus has rebloom
genes. Never rebloomed here.
Cross with strong yellows that rebloom for you. This will work for both
reds and blacks. You could also use good pinks and oranges but these
work better for blacks then reds.

I've decided to focus?on my red and black lines again this spring.? As
most of us know, the red and black lines are rather difficult.? Add in
cold region?rebloom, and the quest becomes even more elusive.??
After a lot of research, I added Regimen & Wearing Rubies to my list
of hopefuls.? Maybe some others.?Will everything bloom?THIS
spring???Probably not.? <grin>?
I'll also use Tara's Choice,?which came from one of my attempts to
develop red rebloom.? When paired with a Ghio red, which I think to be
Regimen, TC gave many seedlings with varying degrees of rebloom.?
Somehow, I've managed to mix the reds and blacks at times.? Blackout on
my red seedling gave very smooth hafts and great branching.? This
spring we will see what it does when mixed with Star Gate.?
What would you (anyone or everyone) use to create a strong (zones 5 &
6) rebloomer in red???or black?
In my opinion, we all benefit by pooling our knowledge.? Most of us
have different interests within the genre, and it's rare that we make
the same cross.? Even if we did, we all have such different selection
processes that it's doubtful we'd introduce anything similar.?
Chuck, Robin and others, please feel free to tell me why this won't
work!? Or which path I should take, if you choose.?
If taken in total context of rebloom for everyone, we are way behind
Ben Hager's time line!
Betty Wilkerson . . . hope no one catches my new sore throat!? I tried
not to cough while I was typing this!? <smile>? My least favorite
holiday gift from the girls!?
