That is an interesting Hypothesis and one worth exploring, but way way
too early to present as a fact. That one out of two seedlings that
rebloomed, may never do it again (I've had that happen many times) and
it may be the only one that reblooms out of a hundred seedlings.
Certainly a working hypothesis. If anyone has other information on
reciprical crosses of this type I'd love to hear the results.
Mike, have you had any experience that is relevant?

Sapphire Jewel, from the two seedlings i got, one is a rebloomer

chances to get rebloomers when it's the moher that is the rebloomer
and the father the carrier!
