One Response to FORTUNE’S DEAREST Part 4 Mort Morss on the Daylily Teeth Blog

  1. Hi Mike, I have had a really interesting time reading all your posts… it is a true education and exploration of toothy evolution… which brings me to this question. The links to the daylily precursors to our toothy daylilies…don’t necessarily demonstrate teeth. This lead me to the question “Are teeth a natural evolution for daylilies?” By selecting for toothy cultivars we are speeding up this natural process….. ? A friend and I have many emails about cultivars showing teeth, knobs and other edge enhancements….especially when heat is involved. Being northern hybridizers..we saw quite a bit of that this past year..a year of extreme heat and drought. One cultivar that comes to mind is Enticing Elegance..a Salter with a pedigree. It was ringed with teeth in my garden this year and took me quite by surprise. Was not able to get any pod set, the pollen did set pods, but no seeds matured to seedlings for me. I blame the extreme conditions for the failures. I will definitely try again this year. I would be interested if you have any genetic reasoning to its’ teeth. Thanks for these great blogs…..on toothies. Claudia Link to Enticing Elegance photo on my farm website
