Re: Re: HYB: Daylength independent

Pat, the problem here is that we have two classes that could be called radom.? We have the cold climate rebloomers like Immortality which frequently summer rebloom in zones 7 and below, and then we have the warm climate rebloomers that frequently summer bloom in zones?8 and up.

The Judge's Handbook classifies them as "multiple bloomers" and "sporadic rebloomers."? This is the recently revised terminology.? 

The terms everbloomer and continuous bloomer were misleading as they are neither continuous or everblooming.??? 

As Linda mentioned earlier, I'm of the opinion that it is, possibly, one set of genes with different triggers or modifiers.? 

Perhaps it shoule be called random bloom.

Someone here has suggested whenever blooming is a more accurate 
description than everblooming.  & that probably comes closer to what I 
mean by everblooming - day length independent, blooming at unpredictable 
times, but not usually continuous bloom. At least not yet... ;-)  I 
guess I should quit calling them everbloomers, but it's simpler to say 
and easier to type than daylength independent.  Maybe summer blooming is 

Some of the Sutton's rebloomers sound like they are continuously in 
bloom for them from spring till fall.

One year, IMM bloomed 5 times here from spring freeze till fall freeze - 
  that's more or less late April-early May thru some time in October. 
  Bloomstalks each month.

But it wasn't really continuous bloom, and like I said before, few 
stalks for the number of fans.  Eventually, I'd like some seedlings that 
would bloom every month, but fewer fans per stalk and less temperature 
sensitive.  TBs, not IBs.

Re: my previous wish about crossing the sibs from FB & IMM - 
oops....lapse of attention on my part.  I forgot about fertility issues 
with IBs!

I really wish is that I had been able to cross some of the 
non-reblooming half sibs I have from IMM - stubbornly uncooperative, 
mostly thanks to the weather.
