HYB:Sibling crosses:Was Daylight

<<Chuck, I wish you had crossed some of the ugly IMM X FOREVER BLUE seedlings with each other to see what the ratios were.?>>
This reminded me.? Back in 2004 in my initial discussion of the 1812 seedlings, someone, I believe it was Chuck, suggested I make a sibling cross.? I did, with many seedlings.? Then the summer of 2007 happened, limiting many things including my space and energy.? The cross wasn't given priority;however, early September I potted up the strongest most vigorous looking?seedling.? It had a vigorous root system.? With luck, more will be planted this spring.? 

Currently, it has 4 increases and looks like it doesn't know we are in the middle of winter.?The plant is green and fresh looking.?It sits among 50+ such pots, where it's green look and vigor is quite outstanding.? Hard to know if this vigor will continue, but I'll report.? 

Hoping for a tall well branched red on yellow plicata with continual bloom stalks.? Expecting anything!

Well, phooey, Chuck.?
So now we have at least three apparent genetic types of ever/summer bloom - the Californians, the cold climate, and the FOREVER BLUEs.?
While they may not be the same genetic package, I wonder if the three could be combined in one plant??
Or if they will turn out to be variants of one suite of genes? The first two seem to be variants of the same genes - based on very little data I have so far, more that Betty has.?
I've gotten a few very early spring/very late fall rebloomers from (cold climate everbloomer X california rebloomer).?
And one everbloomer from a non-reblooming seedling from that type of cross X a late spring/early fall bloomer. (IMM x CSONG) X HoM?
Chuck, I wish you had crossed some of the ugly IMM X FOREVER BLUE seedlings with each other to see what the ratios were.?
