Summer nights are often relatively cool here, even
when the daytime temperatures rise to the 90's.
However, they would typically only go as low as 55-60
degrees. Most of the little rebloom that occurs does
not begin until after mid-September, though even then
it is unlikely that nighttime lows would be dipping
into the 40's six weeks previously (early August).

IMMORTALITY has only rebloomed here twice in 14 years.
The soil pH is close to neutrality (7.0). The only
reliable rebloomers have been CHAMPAGNE ELEGANCE and
its offspring. California rebloomers have been spotty
in their performance, and usually the rebloom stalks
get started so late that they are frozen out before or
during their bloom (mid- to late October).
