Fogbound seems hit or miss as a rebloom parent but
it does give a small percentage of rebloom kids. Really good parent for
form color etc. we are still working it into our lines even though we have
several generations of it's kids in the seedling beds. Treasured has given
us some very nice flowers, usually with incredible branching and bud
count. Attached is a picture of a seedling out of Treasured that rebloomed
last fall and bloomed nicely in spring. No rebloom on it yet this year but
it gives you an idea of Treasured kids. Sorry about the tear below the
beards, bird was sitting on it when I went out to take the picture. This
one was 37" tall with 11 buds on nice thick strong stalks. Bride's Blush X

This seedling is 3/4 FOGBOUND. Interesting to note that it has
given rebloom in your home garden. You are zone 9A?
Several of the FOGBOUND children have given rebloom in Australia and
CA. When combined with other qualities, like substance, maybe this
knowledge will increase the use of FOGBOUND for rebloom, even in zones
Anxiously awaiting the bloom of TREASURED children. Of course, I'm
anxiously awaiting any bloom!
Bloom anxiety has to be acknowledged when one (me) is getting excited
over increase on new seedlings!
