MH0315C (Huben nr) 20 E Re 2.75, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

(Boston Marathon * Ace Up My Sleeve)

Description

I fell in love with this one from the first flower: the delicate appearance is reminiscent of wildflowers such as Mariposa Lilies (Calochortus). To my great delight, it put up three sets of scapes! Needless to say, I've been breeding heavily with this one, intercrossing with the nearwhite rebloomer lines, and introducing rebloom into the tall and small white lines. The sepals show some apricot color. I find the flat throat and gaps between the petal bases very attractive.

      Rapid increase! Rebloom isn't heavy.

      very white, IRe! 4br18bu

      (MH0319A * MH0902S)
      Instant rebloom, extremely white, spatulate, few buds
      • Alina Alina (Huben 2021) 34 E Re 3.25, NearWhite Self,Dor Dip Ext UFO
        (Helicopter * MH1107N)
        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 inEcuador.

    • MH1109K MH1109K (Huben ) 24 E Re 3, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (Vanilla Stella * MH0902S)
      Excellent substance, sunfast, very white.

    • MH1115E MH1115E (Huben ) 30 E Re 3.25, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
      (A Small Multitude * MH0902S)
      4 scapes from a single fan! First scape 6branches and 46 buds, later 27, 28, 10+ buds.

    • MH1115R MH1115R (Huben ) 26 E 3.25, Melon Self, Dor Dip
      (A Small Multitude * MH0902S)
      6br44bu, no bud drop, wide blunt sepals, tailored, bonsai scape, excellent increase

    • MH1115X MH1115X (Huben ) 34 E Re 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (A Small Multitude * MH0902S)
      Tall, slender, graceful scapes with loads of buds and reblooms! 4br28bu, opens flat, sunfast, melon side of near-white.

    • MH1211.10 MH1211.10 (Huben ) 20 EM 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (Helicopter * MH0902S)
      A first attempt to bring narrow forms into white rebloomer lines. Not as narrow or white as the ultimate goal, and no sign of rebloom yet. Maybe next year.

    • Porcelain Porcelain (Huben 2018) 34 EM 3.25, Melon Self, Dor Dip
      (A Small Multitude * MH0902S)
      I knew that A Small Multitude held a multitude of possibilities for breeding. I knew it might pass the branching and budcount, and I knew it could throw melon flowers. I had already seen many seedlings from it. But Porcelain blew me away. It has small, round, pansy-faced, pale melon blooms with a green throat and wide, blunt sepals on amazingly well-branched scapes. I count 5 branches with up to 48 buds. But more importantly, the behavior of Porcelain is special. In my awful garden with droughty conditions and record high populations of aphids and thrips, it still had the awesome budcount AND it did not drop buds (though almost everything else did.) A good increaser, but only a mediocre seed setter. Though it comes from rebloom lines, it does not rebloom for me. It might in the south.


Ancestors

  • 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.
  • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
