 doing very well at promoting and disseminating information about
 those interests.  So it can happen. >>

Awe, but sometimes you gotta have a thick skin.  People took a lot of heat, 
in the early days.  And not so early days.  (The stories I could tell--not 
urban legends!)  And the commercial growers had a lot of truth on their side. 
They fought hard. Rebloomers make it more difficult for them to ship 
rhizomes.  Or so they said.  No clear dormancy.  Eventually, they saw the 
everblooming writing on the wall. ;)  (The need to compete with the rose 
society don't you know!)  In time, those that fought against rebloomers the 
hardest jumped on the wagon.  

Dedication and determination saw the hybridizers through the tough years.
