Shirley's Green Teeth
S. Farmer /
Tet. C-1005 (Leonidas x Creepy Crawler) (Seedling)
24” dor. mid. 5.” , 12 bud count
I am proud to introduce this daylily, with Becky Stegall's permission, hybridized by the late Shirley Farmer. The daylily measures at 24" with candelabra top branching. The budcount is a modest 12 but at clump strength this daylily stands out with a striking contrast. The edge shows as a chartreuses greeen edge. The following are words from Mike Holmes's Teeth Blog about the daylily he called SHIRLEY'S GREEN TEETH.
"This is a seedling that was hybridized by my good friend Shirley Farmer. I call it SHIRLEY’S GREEN TEETH. When Shirley’s daughter turned over her garden to our care, this was one of the daylilies that I selected. The cross is (Leonidas x Creepy Crawler) (Seedling). LEONIDAS is a Harris-Benz hybrid with a cross of (Yuma x Olin Criswell). Leonidas is an oldie that I really like. It is a yellow self and shows an early example of small teeth and hooks. Remember YUMA is also a parent of FORESTLAKE RAGAMUFFIN. CREEPY CRAWLER is a Hite hybrid, (Mary Todd x Golden Surrey). And lets not forget that CREEPY CRAWLER worked its way into Fran Harding’s Forestlake line also going to 3’rd generation to FORESTLAKE POINT LACE. The seedling in Shirley’s cross is unknown to me. If I had to guess the cross, it is Shirley’s 2010 introduction, SHABBY CHIC. SHABBY CHIC is ((Forestlake Ragamuffin sib x Enchanted April) (Angels Smile X Ida’s Magic) Forestlake Ragamuffin). Studying the seedling in GREEN TEETH, I can see the high probability of ANGEL’S SMILE in it."
