We are anxious to see the aril and arilbreds bloom, because we have seen so
few of them in person.  Also hope to see BROKEN DREAMS bloom on a first
year plant.  My daughter, Stephanie, is trying to hybridize in class MTBs
that reliably rebloom and have aril like characteristics.  (She is a very
optimistic person!).  One of the TBs she is going to be using is the
bi-color luminata FLIGHTS OF FANCY.  So, maybe she will come up with a
reblooming luminata you might like, Janet, along the way.  If everyone is
really out of things to discuss, we would love to have your suggestions
about Stephanie's hybridizing goals.  Some of you have already given her
invaluable help through the regular mail.  To reach her goal, it has been
suggested that she use both diploid and tetraploid (kept mostly separate),
species including albertii, imbricata, and aphylla.  She will be utilizing
MTBs, TBs, BBs, and maybe some IBs.  Let us know what you think!
