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 in 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. Likely rust resistant.

    • Helicopter Helicopter (Huben 2013) 36 EM Re 3.5, Melon Self, Dor Dip Ufo
      (A Small Multitude * MH0315E)
      2020 Honorable Mention. 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. Likely rust resistant.
      • A Small Multitude A Small Multitude (Huben 2010) 44 EM 2.5, Gold Self, Dor Dip Noc
        (Corky * Early And Often)
        Gold Self. Tall and Small. Minute, species-like spatulate flowers on tall, well-branched scapes. Extraordinary breeder. Rust resistant.
      • MH0315E MH0315E (Huben ) 24 EM Re 3.25, Melon Self, Dor Dip
        (Boston Marathon * Ace Up My Sleeve)
        • Boston Marathon Boston Marathon (Huben 2010) 24 E Re 3.5, Pink w'Rose Eye, Dor Dip Noc
          (Frequent Flyer * Early And Often)
          Pink with rose eye. Northern Continuous Rebloom. A pretty pink rebloomer with great green throat. Blooms until frost. Likely rust resistant.
        • Ace Up My Sleeve Ace Up My Sleeve (Huben 2010) 22 E Re 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Early And Often * Sunshine On Clouds)
          Near white self. Northern Continuous Rebloom. Increases slowly but an exceptional breeder of continuous rebloomers. Likely rust resistant.
          • Early And Often Early And Often (Huben 2001) 26 E Re 4, Peach Polychrome, Dor Dip Ext Fra Noc
            (Sunny Honey * Sobek 94.12)
            Honorable Mention award 2006! At last: a northern rebloomer that isn't yellow or gold. The heart of my breeding program, producing a great diversity of seedlings, many of them rebloomers. Very rapid increase. Tested and found highly rust resistant (a character passed to most of its kids.) Early And Often was my first introduction, and has lived up to its promise as a continuous rebloomer; it blooms non stop from early July until frost. Some growers report as many as seven sets of scapes per season. Unlike other diploid rebloomers, it is a color clarifier and readily gives up the melon tones in seedlings. Rust resistant.
          • Sunshine On Clouds Sunshine On Clouds (Huben 2006) 26 E Re 4.25, Cream w'Pale Midrib, Dor Dip
            (MH9721E * MH9650E)
            An outstanding clump in my garden for the brilliance, unique shade, and floriferousness. It is a brilliant light yellow, in the cream range but with none of the dullness of most creams due to extreme diamond dusting. The upfacing blooms have a yellowgreen throat. Crossed with Early And Often, it is the parent of Ace Up My Sleeve, and the grandparent of my latest crop of nearwhite rebloomers. It has 18 buds on three branches. Sunshine On Clouds reblooms lightly in my garden, but in other people's gardens it is a much stronger rebloomer. Likely rust resistant.
    • MH1107N MH1107N (Huben ) 20 E Re 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Ufo
      (MH0319A * MH0902S)

          (MH0034F * Ace Up My Sleeve)
          My best white rebloomer. Sib to Snowy Stella. A continuous rebloomer that is not yellow. Whiter than any tetraploid "white", it has a green throat good ruffling and heavy diamond dusting. 16 buds with 3 sets of scapes in my garden. Pod and pollen fertile. When crossed with other continuous rebloomers, it throws a high percentage of reblooming kids, great color clarity, high budcount, large green throats and a great deal of green in sepals as well. Likely rust resistant. This one is named for my personal theme song, "Weird Al" Yankovic's "I'm Too White & Nerdy".
