MH1211.10 (Huben nr) 20 EM 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

Description

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.

    • 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.

      (MH0315C * White And Nerdy)
      • MH0315C MH0315C (Huben ) 20 E Re 2.75, NearWhite 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.
        • 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.
      • White And Nerdy White And Nerdy (Huben 2012) 28 EM Re 4.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (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. This one is named for my personal theme song, "Weird Al" Yankovic's "I'm Too White & Nerdy".
