MH1331E (Huben nr) 26 E Re 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

(Helicopter * MH1107N)


You know how sometimes the first bloom is all you need to decide on an introduction? MH1331E opened today, and looks like Nutmeg Elf in near-white. 26 E Re 3.5, with 4 branches and 12 buds for its first scape with a rebloom scape coming along. But that’s in my garden, where I haven’t fertilized. Who knows what it will do at Harmon Hill. Already it shows rapid increase. I’ve been working towards this for 15 years, starting with the cross of Corky * Early and Often that resulted in A Small Multitude.



    No descendents.


    • 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.
