“I have two toothy seedlings that are well endowed with teeth, and in looking at them this morning, I compared their teeth, and one seems to have more of the “teeth” form while the other had more the “tendril” form. These seedlings were from my last two years of seedlings, so haven’t had the opportunity to see what they can do yet, but I do have seedlings growing from both with various crosses, so this bloom season we should see what 7T48A can pass on/do and then next year for 8T327A. My numbering system uses the year that the seed was made, not the year of first bloom. I’d like you to see what I am trying to say about teeth and tendrils; just my take on the difference. 7T48A [(Annette's Magic X Horny Devil) X Who Dey!] has many of the spinney type teeth/tendrils, while 8T327A (Ruffled Strawberry Parfait x Iwanna Piranha) has the wider teeth from where they break away from the petal edge. Thinking of “tendrils” reminds of the catfish spines, while teeth reminds me of our “dogs teeth”.
Thanks David! We’ll be back in discussion Monday morning on the daylily teeth blog. Have a nice weekend.
