- This is the only rebloomer I have so far. It is a very hardy rebloomer dark purple self here in zone 6, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Started blooming this fall on 10/18 and still going very strong today 10/31. And the grape soda fragrance is great. Grape Adventure is a pleasant sight from the kitchen window. -- WikiGuest - 31 Oct 2019
