|I saw this one in John Rice's greenhouse. It had the most unusual edge - teeth? Claws???? They were not pointed like teeth on Bass Gibson.|

|My favorite "toothed" daylily is an older one of John Rice. |
Crown of Creation
It was originally listed as a double, but I have grown it many years, never have seen it doubled in my garden or in anyone else's, including John's.
In 2008, it was REALLY showing off in his greenhouse - it was a poly bloom with tons of teeth.

|Glitter, is that same as diamond dust or not? |

|If I had more letters that I could put in the title, I would have said "Metallic edges" or something like that.|
I can always change the forum title to something more clear.
I was trying to describe the metallic gold, silver or green edges that sometimes show on the edges of daylilies. To me, they look like they have glitter on them.
Once at Moldovan's Gardens, I went along with Steve Moldovan when he was "walking seedlings." I spotted a lovely rose self - and it had deep magenta rose metallic glittery edges. I commented to Steve about it. He flagged the plant, but I don't know what became of it. It was the only daylily I have seen with that color metallic edge.
I find this trait extraordinary because I don't know of any other plant of any kind that is capable of showing metallic, shiny effects

|OH, YES< I know exactly what you are talking about now, I think I only have one like that. Bread and Wine. would LOVE to have more, I didn't even know that dalylilies HAD those lovely glittery edges until it bloomed last summer for me. |
I don't know if there is an 'official' name for that glittery edging or not.
The glitter sprinkles over the petals I have always refered to as diamond dust, totally different.

|Great shot of Crown of Creation as a poly. It has never doubled for me either. Here is a shot of it as a single.|

|I like the contrast of this white edge on Berry Cheesecake with the deep saturated raspberry color. A few teeth.|

|This seedling gets it's teeth from Bodacious Bite and it's metallic glitter from Art Gallery Irredescence. Not sure if I have ever seen a glittery edge.|

|Susan, thanks for moving your pics... I deleted the other thread.|

|This will be registered this fall. Its the best tooth thing I have done. None of the parents have teeth.|

|That is beautiful.... I always enjoy looking at your seedlings. I am not one for big edges up here in the north, but with the teeth, that is very nice. It is extra special because it is an edge/no eye.|
Do you think the teeth are coming from JT Davis? I have sure seen a lot of pretty seedlings out of JT.

|These are absolutely beautiful. Spunky, yours is fabulous. That Crown of Creation is breath taking too.|

|I don't know where the teeth came from, but I was tickled when I seen it bloom the first year and every bloom look about the same. This is one that bloomed this pass season, not crazy about the color.|

|this is a terrible bloom on this plant, so I won't tell you which one it is... |
It is the only photo of the glitter edge I can find quickly. I know I have some more, but need to find them. My photos are not organized ....
Enlarge the pic and look very closely at the very edge of the petals and you will see gold metallic glitter looking stuff.

|That is very unique. I have not seen a glittery edge like that before. I would really like to know which one it is as it is important when choosing to breed the edge even if you don't like the color as it may improve with breeding. Great photo's of it.|

|That is a lot of glitter Jules. Looks like it's a really nice daylily.|
Feb 4, 2010 1:21 PM CST
|It wasn't open very well that day. Actually, most days the glitter on it is silver. But could not find a photos like that.|
It is John Rice's Papal Robes.

|I think it's appropriately named.|
