Alina (Huben 2021) 34 E Re 3.25, NearWhite Self,Dor Dip Ext UFO

MH1331E = (Helicopter * MH1107N)
Price: $150 SF

Description

For decades I have wanted Nutmeg Elf in different colors. I got it in melon with Helicopter, and now I have it win near-white! This is a breakthrough in small UFO's not just because it is a small spatulate, but for the unrivaled clear white with a wide-open green throat, cool morning opening, self-grooming and the strong northern rebloom. I knew it was an introduction even before the first flower opened, just from the color of the buds and the instant rebloom. 4 branches and 12 buds are not as good as Helicopter, but with a face like that who cares? The pollen is fertile: I don't know about the pods. Alina is named for my sweetheart, who has spirited me away to happiness in Ecuador.

    • Helicopter Helicopter (Huben 2013) 36 EM Re 3.5, Melon Self, Dor Dip Ufo
      (A Small Multitude * MH0315E)
      Helicopter is the most distinctive introduction I have this year, and really excites me. Several people are working on small spideries and UFOs, and I got one by accident! My actual goal was hanging flowers, but what I got was a small MELON spatulate. Three breakthoughs at once: small size, narrow spatulate form, and melon color that will let me move to clean whites, pinks, reds and purples. All that AND it has one-time rebloom (late) in my garden and at Harmon Hill Farm. In plant habit, Helicopter resembles Nutmeg Elf (McCabe 1978), an Award Of Merit winner. A forest of slender, well branched scapes floats numerous flowers well above the foliage and well separated from each other. Grace personified! A great increaser with four branches and 18 buds.
