TET 48010 {sdlg x (Repeat the Sounding Joy x sdlg} x Desire of Nations. The seedlings are too complicated to spell out, but include some unexpected things like Jane Trimmer, Storm Shelter, Moses in the Bulrushes. 5.5" (sometimes 6"), 28", 3-way branching (5-way in the GH), 19 buds (loads more inside), ML, Ev, rebloom (but not in MN), fr. Burgundy; icy dark lavender eye; icy dark lavender plus ivory edge; yellow to green throat.
Picture 1 is its maiden bloom. Picture 6 is in the greenhouse. Sometimes has teeth and tendrils. Fast grower. Tested at Mike Derrow's in West Virginia zone 6 where it has reliable rebloom, performs well in their winters as well as after spring frosts and in dry weather, and gives very rich color to its seedlings. Also tested in Texas where it holds its color well. Easily fertile both ways. I didn't use it much because it was tender in its initial Minnesota location. Once planted in a more protected spot 15 feet south of the greenhouse, it has performed beautifully. That said, I am reluctant to sell it to anyone in zone 4 or lower (although I'd consider gifting it), and will guarantee it for 2 years in other zones.
