and finally, the cream of the cream...as far as my crosses are concerned:
B156AR =Forever Blue X Cry Baby-3buds.
This one is a rebloomer and  will be used on the crosses involving Forever Blue and the ones involving Cry Baby.
There should be some rebloom!
Hope this is of any interest to you!
Now, back to powdering my nose...

here are the pictures of the cross B109=Experiment X Forever Blue 3buds X B155=Cry baby x Experiment 3buds.
The latter was also an only child. Has more yellow it it, so i might get sth closer to Experiment there!

Hello Chuck,
Experiment X Forever Blue has no sib, it was the only one that made it, quite easy to decide who must live in that case!
i also have many other seedlings involving forever, and of course i have made some crosses between them!
For the moment, i'm up to my nostrils daubing  white powder all over the place, when it gets less hectic, i will post all the pictures on Flickr, and update what i did last year.
i  have also made crosses with Cry Baby, that is also a very early rebloomer, hope it's a good match with Forever Blue.
 Here are 2 photos of one of the crosses i've done  : B064D=Cry Baby x James Bond-3buds X B074A= james Bond x Forever Blue-3buds
I'll post another one in the next mail.

A great start. As the "Whenever" reblooming genes are recessive or
perhaps even rececessive and a double gene combination, you will need
to cross to a "Whenever" rebloomer or a known carrier such as "What
Again". A cross to "Summer Recall" if you have it would be ideal. Could
do back cross to Forever Blue.

I'm assuming that siuitable sibs are not available. If you had a number
bloom from this cross I'd like to know what they were like.

You are much ahead of me in bloom. SDBs won't be out here for another
three to four weeks.

Here is B109 = Experiment X Forever Blue (3buds-26cm).

I'm trying to get a look alike of Experiment that would rebloom early

Will tell you when it works...
