I had tried FB X Baby Blessed and nothing was a rbloomer.
I havn't gotten anything with Lo Ho Silver after many tries. You will
have to let us know what the results are.
I have got some pods from I Blessed , which I suspect to be a glaciata
as well as a reblooming IB. Seeds wer planted but I havn't double
checked to seee how plants are doing.
Breeding with FB to produce rebloomers is a bit frustrating as it's
genetics for rebloom seem to be quite different then most reblooming
genetics. A completely new set of genetics as far as I can tell.

Thanks Chuck for the feed back.
Here are some news from my favorites, the IBs, since not much data
seems to be available, i thought it might interest you.
What do you think of Low Ho Silver =(Howdy Do X Baby Blessed)
Have you ever tried to use it?
It's a very early bloomer here, early rebloomer ( begining of July)
and my best re-rebloomer too.
I was sterile for many years ( i tried hundreds of crosses on this one!)
but last autumn it set pods!!!
Here is what i got: pod pol froz seeds
low ho silver cameo blush
low ho silver cry baby
low ho silver dark crystal
low ho silver immortality
low ho silver juicy fruit
low ho silver just teasing
low ho silver speed limit
low ho silver TT05-09d= cerf-Volant X Liaison
The number of seeds is not much, and they might never germinate, no pod
with Forever Blue's pollen neither, but who knows, i might get lucky
with one of the crosses...
There is also Angel Heart =(Coral Charmer X Be Happy ), that reblooms
regularly at the end of June, then again later,and has set pods ,for
the frst time in years also, last autumn:
pod pol froz seeds
angel heart banana cream
angel heart bounce back + 4
angel heart cameo blush
angel heart conjuration + 14
angel heart cry baby
angel heart eternal bliss
angel heart gypsy boy
angel heart i'm back
angel heart popstar
And my third big hope comes from I'll Be Back =(Joe Cool X Eternal
Bliss) that starts to reblooom early August and has been a fabulous
pod pol froz seeds
i'll be back again and again
i'll be back detroit city + 17
i'll be back duke of earl
i'll be back eternal bliss
i'll be back honey scoop
i'll be back i'm back
i'll be back mukadam + 4
i'll be back TT05-09d = cerf-Volant X Liaison + 10
i'll be back what again
Many more crosses with the medians, but these 3 seem to be very
promissing since they are reliable early and multiple rebloomers here
who, like Betty, could die (or kill...) for a repeat, cycle &
everblooming / continuous / non-daylight dependant rebloomer!
