For years there has been only one reliable, country-wide, reblooming MTB,
Lady Emma (F. Jones '86). Down side; under excellent culture L.E. will
throw a stalk and flower that puts her out of the MTB class. And yet, Lady
Emma will prosper and rebloom while growing in a crack in a sidewalk.

In rummaging into the background of Merit (K. Fisher 86), I find the H. P.
Sass cultivar, Pixie (H.P. Sass 32), in three places in the 5th generation.
Nearly half the pedigree is missing or un-notated seedlings in the sixth
generation, thus the only sure rebloom factor I can find is Pixie.

Has Merit rebloomed for any other listers besides Sterling?
