Lullaby Of Spring only reblooms in July in a zone 9 garden.  So it very
unlikely to be a  Direct (summer rebloomer). Most likely an extended season
rebloomer. That is it needs about 5 months of growing season after plant
reaches maturity.

I would suspect  that the only rebloomers you would get from this cross would
be  rebloomers that would rebloom only in California.

I found it - Stanton's address is Escondido CA.

And I discovered that weather.com also has Kingston records, much closer than

Escondido's summer nighttime low temperatures are almost identical to
Kingston's, so anything blooming in there in August might be capable of
blooming here in August/Sept <if> everything else were suitable <and> the
average temperatures are close enough to what's happening now.

I was able to get some seeds from IMMORTALITY X LULLABY OF SPRING this year,
the only one from his list of July/August bloomers that cooperated.  Ought to
be a bunch of really ugly seedlings, but will probably plant them just to see
if they can rebloom here.
