'All Summer Beauty' is my top choice. I've got experience with at least 9 reblooming cultivars (maybe more, not sure off the top of my head), and ASB has always been more dependable than anything else for me. They're all *very* similar though, in that they're pastel mopheads to about the same size. 'Penny Mac' for a larger shrub, 'Mini Penny' for a smaller one. 'Blushing Bride' or 'Mme. Emile Moulliere' for a white, though BB ages pink. Mme. E. is often not mentioned but *is* remontant here in 7b. 'Endless Summer' gets all the press, but get 'David Ramsay' instead, if that's what you're after (and if you can find it). It's the exact same plant. And not patented, so generally cheaper.
