I have two massive plantings (2004) of it here.  I've had ONE rebloom stalk
and it was in Oct 2009. My understanding of it's listing in the rebloom
list--Oct. bloom in VA.

<<SUNNY DISPOSITION blooming Sept 21, 2003,>>

I've some memory of stalks starting on 'Lilla' several years ago.  I believe
that was in 2005 when I had so much rebloom.   No rebloom on 'Mac Shawe.'

Thanks for the tip, Chuck. According to the online database, it was introduced
in 1991.

?====Anybody have a 1991 Avonbank Gardens catalog?

I figure the "summer" rebloom "ability" genes will be there, but it seems like
there is a suite of other genes affecting growth rate or temperature
tolerances or who knows what that have to be there in the right combination as
well. From my <very> limited experience and understanding of things others
have said, it seems like some crosses that "should" produce "summer"
rebloomers are better at it than others.

Betty, I checked the archives, and found that I reported SUNNY DISPOSITION
blooming Sept 21, 2003, about a month before first freeze and start of typical
cycle bloomers. It was its first summer here, purchased the preceding fall, so
may have still been a bit mixed up. Hard to say if that is "summer" or HoM
type cycle since both bloom about that time here.

?=== Do either LILLA or MAC SHAWE (from SUNNY D) "summer" bloom for anybody? I
have both, but neither has rebloomed.

<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 detail in his catalogue "Avonbank
Gardens" so notes on this cross are probably available in old copies of the
