Good Morning Clarence,
It's quite possible that my understanding of hybrid vigor is skewed.   I 
consider the ability to survive to be a characteristic of vigor.  
In the seedling patch, I often see weak seedlings that  rebloom.  Others are 
relatively slow to increase.  They do not  have what I would call hybrid 
vigor.  Some barely replace themselves from  year to year.  
One of my most beautiful reblooming seedlings bloomed both spring and fall  
and bloomed out before it could establish.  It lasted for two springs and  one 
fall.  Another of the same color pattern is about to do the  same.   The new 
one is inferior in other ways too.  
I currently have three reblooming seedlings I'd like to introduce but won't  
because they don't grow well.  
The rebloomers are usually vigorous and strong, but not always.
