Too late!  I've had Regent, Theissen, Smokey, Honeywood, Timm & Success  in 
place for several years, got Martin, Nelson, and Parkhill this spring.  So 
far (knock on wood) I've not had any problems with rust - and there are 
plenty  J.virginiana around here.  The Timm&Success seedlings I got from 
Bear Creek a number of years ago have been the most prolific producers, so 
far, as all have been in place for 6 years or less.
I've also got "Jennybelle" (A.obovata) and a seedling A.lamarckii, but 
neither has produced as well as the Timm & Success or the local A.laevis trees.
