Great video, thanks for sharing! It would be interesting to see what it takes to recover rebloom. Impressive on the results for hardiness.

Excellent and inspirational down to earth visual info sharing of your hybridizing efforts and results ... and makes it crystal clear to me it Is rarely a breeze to hit the bell dead on without a thought-out plan like you use. R. Nitida has “survived” up here for 4 winters, clean and fights off rabbits ravages ... got about 12 inches high this year and spread out a “bit” - still hoping for a bloom now area is fenced in. BTW looks like your “living the dream” of some.

Four thumbs up, Joe!
What doesn't kill them makes them stronger.
