Freedom's Triumph--x--God Save The Queen, Claudia Conway

Claudia Conway,N.H. , writes “I really feel, as I have said before, that DLs are evolving towards toothy edges…
From small bumps or knobby edges…we are able to make crosses that have a higher percentage
possibility of teeth in the offspring…as you say making the edge pop…. ”

Melanie Mason, N.Y., in response to Jamie Gossard “Re: Ripped edges… although visually I agree with Jamie Gossard that the edges have a torn appearance, if you look carefully, the color of the toothy edge persists completely around the petal, with no interuption. My thoughts are that at somewhat regular intervals along the edge, there is cellular proliferation. At these intervals, the edge grows faster than the petal, allowing teeth, knobs, horns, and even tentacles to appear. Nevertheless, even in the absence of these protrusions, the edge is apparent.”

Eddy Muers, Belgium, writes  “Where can we place this phenomenon” ??

 Thanks Claudia, Melanie and Eddy!

  1. John Benz says:

    All ruffles and gold edges are from faster cellular growth causing ripples and ruffles around the petal edges….same thing with crested midribs.

    Teeth and jagged fringe are caused by a more complicated mechanism, and Ted Blaney or Dr. Grant-Downton could explain this in more detail. The good doctor explained to me the exact mechanism that causes the double edges like COSMIC ODYSSEY to trail out from the throat in a lacy filigree. I’m not a scientist, so even though I followed him fairly well, I could not render even a “dumbed down version of his explanation.”
