Sorry for the confusion - the list was of tough oncers, not of
rebloomers, tho maybe some of these rebloom?  Here's Vince's list with
my comments about the ones I've grown here:

> ALIZES - new for me  - has been consistent in other gardens near here
> BRONZETTE STAR - new for me - has been consistent in other gardens near here
> CARNIVAL IN RIO
> CELESTIAL FLAME
> CHARISMA
> COLORTRAK
> CYCLES
> ENSIGN - BB
> GOLD FROSTING
> INDIGO PRINCESS - did really well for me for several years, but seems to require cultivation to perform consistantly (the 'new ground' syndrome)
> KENTUCKY DERBY - consistant
> LEDA'S LOVER - hasn't bloomed consistantly but is doing well
> LULLABY OF SPRING - has done very well in other gardens around here but I think I lost it
> MYSTIC LACE
> OLYMPIAD - I think this is new
> PAINTED PLIC
> PLAY WITH FIRE - nice & healthy, demands cultivation/division to bloom/sensitive to (dwarfed by) heat/dry weather during bloom (IB/BB size with cute little blooms - is this aphylla influence?).  This makes a lovely little cut flower.
> RED ZINGER - IB
> ROCK STAR
> SANTANA - I think I killed this
> SKYHOOKS - did ok at first - may need cultivation/new ground to persist
> SPEED LIMIT
> STEPPING OUT - after 10+ yrs, I think this rot prone dude is still alive out in the weeds, but it never blooms and rots profusely.  I may get some more and try growing it with lots of alfalfa and cultivation.
> SUPREME SULTAN - behaves like PLAY WITH FIRE, but isn't as reliable a bloomer
> SWEET MUSETTE - this "ought" to grow for me, but I think I keep killing it.
> TIGER SHARK
> TITAN'S GLORY - very vigorous, but flowers are usually prevented or damaged by roller coaster March & later freezes.
> VANITY - usually does well.  Seems to like some protection by weeds - definitely not happy in full shade & under matted elm leaves(well, you never know till you try it :)).  Haven't experimented with VANITY enough (except for shade torture) to know what kinds of treatment it likes best here - cultivation/being left alone, weeds/no weeds.

Vince also thinks these may do well, but hasn't had for more than one
full growing season:
> AZTEC SUN
> DAWNING
> STOLEN DREAMS
> WESTERN CARNIVAL
