Re: HYB: daylength independent
Betty, you've been working with rebloomers for a long time - I'm
curious, have you made many cold climate summer X cold climate summer
crosses? Or cold climate summer X cold climate cycle?
If so, do you have notes on what percentage of the seedlings were
summer, cycle, or non-rebloom?
I see from the chart you sent me of IMM crosses you've made that you did
get rebloomers from IMM X CHAMPAGNE ELEGANCE. CE is a cycle rebloomer
here (hardly ever reblooms even as a cycle), what's its bloom habit in
KY? summer or cycle?
Do you have other notes/memory of which type (by type, I mean season) of
rebloom seedlings the cross produced or what percentage? Your notes on
the excel file just say 'several rebloomers'.
Were the CHRISTMAS RUBIES X FOXY LADY and VICTORIA FALLS X VANITY
seedlings you crossed with IMM rebloomers? If so, what type?
Your notes say IMM X PRECIOUS MOMENTS produced summer rebloomers.
Since PM hasn't been reported to rebloom anywhere, I'm surprised by that
one (doesn't match my preconceptions <g>)
[According to the new, updated, revised, and still full of errors ;-(
rebloom checklist, CHRISTMAS RUBIES, PINK SLEIGH, PRECIOUS MOMENTS have
not been reported to rebloom anywhere (which, of course, doesn't mean
they haven't, just that nobody told us about it); GLISTENING ICICLE only
in CA & MO; VANITY only in CA & VA; FOXY LADY registered as a rebloomer
and lots of reports for it, including KY, VF not registered as a
rebloomer, but widespread reports of rebloom for it as well.]
