I bought the Schreiner seedling trial year before last - the lavender
seedling rotted shortly after planting, but in spite of (untreated) rot,
managed to put out 4 bloomstalks the following srping and one increase.  It
died.  (But I MAY have gotten some pollen off of it on DUSKY CHALLENGER - not
sure those seeds are going to germinate).  Rebloomers seem to have extra
bloomstalks - at a couple of gardens last spring (remember the dreadful
spring?), I saw lots of rebloomers which lost their terminal bud stalk or had
a lot of distortion but had nicely blooming sidestalks, sometimes several.
