     Thanks so much for your input...since ONE DESIRE is a rebloom carrier, I 
was leaning toward thatone, so it's good to hear it lives well...and since it 
doesn't have the deeper saturation I want, I was hoping to use DIRECT FLIGHT 
with it, then CORAL CHARMER which may not have that depth but is a fabulous 
rebloomer here.   Interresting to see the other two good reblooming pinks, 
PINKNESS and PINK ATTRACTION both have VANITY in their background.    Most 
pinks I find so washed out...would crossing to reds help with depth of color?

zone 8 of Sc, getting unseasonable cold for us, to 25 degrees two evenings 
this week???   At least it brought rain too, we needed that.
