 Lloyd mixed up his  crosses a lot. So a number of his fall cyclic rebloomers
also  had summer rebloom genes.

He did document a lot of his  crosses in deail in his catalogue "Avonbank
Gardens" so notes on this cross are proably available in old copies  of the

One cross that I wanted to make this year was IMMORTALITY X RENOWN - no luck.

?====Anybody have material and willing to make the cross for me?  I want IMM
as pod parent for health, RENOWN as pollen, grow the seeds here, send increase
off any of them that survive if you want.

?====Or maybe someone has already tried the cross?

I wouldn't expect anything very good as far as blooms go from this cross, but
really wanted to see how easy it is to get "summer"/warm season rebloom from
the combination of these two "packages" of rebloom genes. Both can bloom in
warm weather here, & while neither is very good at it, at least they both can
bloom early enough in fall to avoid early freezes.

I've gotten quite a few fairly good seedlings from both IMM and RENOWN in
crosses with non-rebloomers (at least they don't rebloom in my climate) and
would like to work back towards at least some possibility of rebloom in future

Counting chickens before they finish hatching, but judging from high
percentage of fall maiden bloom from HARVEST OF MEMORIES X RENOWN, it looks
like that combination works well to continue getting rebloom.  I won't know
for sure till this fall whether it's early enough to beat the freezes.

?====IMM & HARVEST OF MEMORIES can combine to produce "summer" bloomers (i.e.,
SUNNY DISPOSITION), but anybody know whether that was one in 100 or if several
rebloomed from the cross?
