Why do we want to breed green teeth? The image tells the story. Plus there aren’t any true green teeth daylilies available.  This hybridizing quest should be easier to do than the true blue daylily. We have pretty good tools to work with.

 Around 2005,   Larry Grace became intrigued with the idea of hybridizing daylilies with green edges. One problem, where do you begin? The seedling Best Edge had been thought of as a daylily that could breed green edges. Larry  felt his own JT DAVIS would lead him toward green.  After years of work and careful selection,  he introduced  FULL OF TREASURE for 2011. FULL OF TREASURE, while it does not have a foliage green  edge, it does have a yellow to green edge. Best of all, the surface colors are on a neutral base with no visible tan tones in it. That makes FULL OF TREASURE a color cleaner. So do you want to bred green teeth, consider this daylily.  Tomorrow on the daylily blog we will talk about a few more “daylily green” edges to work  in crossing into teeth….btw-daylily image is a cheesy photoshop image…
