This is really disappointing to hear.  All the discussion on the list about
cold weather re-bloomers up till now has included enthusiasm for how they are
not at all rot-prone and are much more care-free than many of the once
bloomers.  I assume late spring freezes, which kill or severely damage (rot
invitation!) early bloomers would do the same.  Does this mean that some of
these are not what would be considered cold season re-bloomers?  Phooey.

Are there reblooming diploids?  miniature tall bearded?
