SHABBY CHIC

This is a seedling that was hybridized by my good friend Shirley Farmer. I call it SHIRLEY’S GREEN TEETH. When Shirley’s daughter turned over her garden to our care, this was one of the daylilies that I selected. The cross is (Leonidas x Creepy Crawler) (Seedling). LEONIDAS is a Harris-Benz hybrid with a cross of   (Yuma x Olin Criswell). Leonidas is an oldie that I really like. It is a yellow self and shows an early example of small teeth and hooks. Remember YUMA  is also a parent of FORESTLAKE RAGAMUFFIN. CREEPY CRAWLER is a Hite hybrid,  (Mary Todd x Golden Surrey). And lets not forget that CREEPY CRAWLER worked its way into Fran Harding’s Forestlake line also going to 3’rd generation to FORESTLAKE POINT LACE. The seedling in Shirley’s cross is unknown to me. If I had to guess the cross, it is Shirley’s 2010 introduction, SHABBY  CHIC.  SHABBY CHIC is ((Forestlake Ragamuffin sib x Enchanted April) (Angels Smile X Ida’s Magic) Forestlake Ragamuffin). Studying the seedling in GREEN TEETH, I can see the high probability of ANGEL’S SMILE in it.

When John Benz saw SHIRLEY’S GREEN TEETH he immediately asked me for it. I told John that it had a short scape. John said he didn’t care because he knew the genetics in it were powerful for teeth and he said he thought it would breed green teeth. John for several years previous had been working on green teeth so this daylily was a fit in his program. So John took home a piece in 2009. We should see the results in 2011.

Next week we will be talking about Green Teeth Daylily Hybridizing. Tomorrow a follow up on FORESTLAKE  WARM AND FUZZY on the daylily blog.

    Hi Mike,
    Noticed that Shabby Chic has a couple of doses of Reckamp breeding in it. Obviously Angel’s Smile but Enchanted April is (Techny Peach Lace x Wedding Band). Enchanted April is behind Jamie’s Buzzsaw and sibs and a bunch of other things that breed toothy.

    Who is the co-registrant on Shabby Chic? I thought it was to be Kim.

      Dave, thanks for the additional background of SHABBY CHIC. Shirley was a big Reckamp fan way back. I sure miss her and she’d be right in the thick of discussion if she were here today. Actually Shirley’s daughter, Becky is the Registrant.
      Kim was helping Becky out in sales.

    Mike,

    The sdlg known as SHIRLEY’S GREEN TEETH is positively a sdlg from [Creepy Crawler x Leonidas) X SHABBY CHIC] Shirley brought me one of the first blooms and was very excited about the fact that SHABBY was throwing “green” teeth. She mentioned it on several occasions as one her the most exciting of all her SHABBY CHIC kids due to the edge. Later

    John,

    Which is a greener edge, SHIRLEY’S GREEN TEETH or your WILD THORNBERRY?
