Re: Re: REB: oops - Rose Kinnard's seedlings


Hi Linda- Other reblooming crosses without rebloom noted-Dark Passion, Stellar Lights, Honky Tonk Blues, Frappe, Love the Sun, several crosses to seedlings out of Olympic Challenge, Summer Olympics, Capt Gallant, Immortality, are just a few that come readily to mind.  All had good substance, modern form, ruffles, colors not exactly "nice" and low bud counts.  The Nice blue seedling picture posted this spring out of Final Episode was a cross of Honky Tonk Blues x Stellar lights)( FE.  The plants are great, wonderful increase, healthy foliage, large fans, no rebloom so far, this is an 08-maiden bloom on only 1 this spring-picture posted.  So if I transplant the best plants next spring into fresh soil and keep them watered better, maybe change the feeding, I might see rebloom on more mature plants next fall.  LOL a lot of maybe's but I think it would be worth the effort to see if the potential is there.  It is a thrill to see the first bloom on them though.

Thanks Rose.

Darn - so you won't really know it's a rebloomer for sure till after
this maiden bloom.

If you have time, what are the other crosses you've tried with FINAL
EPISODE that didn't give rebloom kids?

I keep wondering how the Oz/CA rebloom genes will mix with Zurbrigg
rebloom genes. I know it <can> work here because Sutton's GOLDEN
IMMORTAL has lived and rebloomed for me. Just no idea if that's a
rarity or easy to come by.

> I have used Final Episode in at least 3 crosses a year for 4 years. This is the first to show rebloom/fall bloom actually-This is maiden bloom on an 08 cross-plants are about 18 mths old.
