Things rebloom here when it gets over 100. Night time
lows only get down to the high 70s and low 80s during summer rebloom, must be
something else. I don't think cold is too much of a factor in a lot of
rebloomers, more like growing conditions, sunlight, moisture (or lack of it)
soil ph. etc. Most rebloom that I have observed happens when a plant that
is prone to rebloom reaches the right rhizome size to bloom.......there is
probably more to it but that seems to be the unifying factor, at least here
anyway. On that note..... we have a ton of stalks coming on in the
seedling beds in addition to 5 of next years intros currently
blooming. L-66 is the mother of all reblooming parents here. Just
about every cross out of it in the seedling bed has at least one plant blooming
right now or one sending up a stalk. It doesn't matter what it is
crossed with, it produces rebloom offspring. Should have a L-66 x Romantic
Evening blooming next week, hope it is nice.
Thanks for the input

I find her
lovely! Nice deep falls, I'd give it a chance here. Do
any of the Schreiners neglectas do ok for you? I'm always amazed that
you have things rebloom at 85 degrees, nothing here has ever wanted to
rebloom in anything over 80 degrees. Must be our night temps that
are warmer than yours? Anyway, enjoy, you lucky
dog. Have to content myself with daylillies, petunias,
iceplant, shasta daisies here, and roses of course. The lovely
waft of fragrance from gardenias just about done.
