With 'Laced Cotton' being a plicata, I can see where you might get some
plicatas in the next generation. I don't see much chance for rebloom
but it might be there in more temperate climates. What would you use
or have you used for the next step?
'Again & Again' did bloom some plicatas when used with 'Echo Location'
so it works for plicata breeding. 'All Revved Up' tends to be a good
breeder and has given rebloomers. I'd try it as pollen parent on this
one. I've not tried 'Echo Location' as much but it gave two plicata
rebloomers with A & A. (Late fall and nothing new)

Still in the north-facing swamp. Only 3 seedlings from the cross,
and one of them rotted first year. Branch bloom photo, no RE.

I might play with this, come spring. At least 2 generations, I'll bet.
