Summer rebloomers seem to all be Early (E) bloomers. Fall cyclic rebloomers are more likely to be M, or EM.

I remember reading somewhere that Lloyd Zurbrigg had a theory that early spring bloom was indicative that the cultivar was a rebloom carrier.

While there are obviously many rebloomers which are not early spring bloomers, I do notice that most of those TBs which bloom earliest in spring in my garden are known rebloomers.

Has anyone else noticed an early spring bloom / rebloom carrier connection? It would be useful to know if the association is strong enough that it could be used as a reasonable indicator of which once-bloomers carry rebloom genes.
