Being a dentist, I would like to know that as well. Whistling

Some daylilies have frilly edges and breeders have 'enhanced' those edges to look like jaggedy teeth in some cases. I don't have any, but there have been any number of photos of toothed daylilies on the Daylilies forum. We're just starting into the big season for daylilies, so jump on and follow a thread there, and you're sure to see some.

Oh man, that's a great page Jean. If you scroll down a few, there are some really impressive teeth on that page.

The pale yellow one called Reap the Whirlwind is just fabulously toothy.

I need to wait a few years until they've been on the market so the price comes down, though. Some of those newer cultivars go for hundreds of dollars in the first year or two after they are introduced.

That's quite a sight, Jean. Not knowing a thing about daylilies, and certainly not knowing anything about the "serious collector" (and those more than serious prices), my eyes have really been opened when it comes to these plants. Maybe I should quit growing orchids. Whistling

Again, this is a thought from a lily-dummy, but it seems that daylilies would do pretty well for you Karen. There sure are some beautiful ones out there. The two I have sure have really gorgeous flowers, at least to my eyes.

My MIL was a great fan of daylilies...she would have adored Reap the Whirlwind, but Bass Gibson was her color preference.

She sort of gave up when Mr Clarence (Crochet) passed away in 2014. She would make fairly regular trips up to his Garden here in Prairieville.

Ken and Karen, daylilies are fairly easy to grow and most are pretty hardy. Even in my "Garden of Earthly Neglect", mine do quite well. A couple pics over the years.

All pretty ones, Jean, but I love that almost black one. It would probably do well with some shade. I imagine the dark ones suffer some in the heat of the day (but what do I know? Whistling ).

Thanks, Ken. I may have to try them out. A new addiction is not what I need! There certainly are a lot of beautiful pics in our database.

Thumbs up Maybe not an addiction, just a slight fever. Whistling

One would think so, Ken. I moved the nearly black to an area that got dappled sun during the afternoon...the blooms came out smaller, fewer and the stems etiolated and grew at an angle. So, NB got moved back to the full sun. Thus my garden philosophy..."If it is growing and blooming, don't mess with success...keep yer hands off." nodding

Karen, there are places, reputable places, that you can get lovely plants for under $10, considerably less that the auctioned off Bass Gibson that went for $700 . Blinking
