I like to think I live in the teeth capital of the United States.....which is the state of Ohio.  It is such a blessing to be able to drive (not fly) to Jamie Gossard's, Mike Holmes, John Benz, or Tom Polston's at the drop of a hat.  I did manage to get to Jamie Gossard's Heavenly Gardens this year and saw some really cool toothy daylilies.  The purple seedling at the top of the page is one of Jamie's seedlings I fell in love with. The cross for this seedling is Dragon Fang X Rosy Spiketail.  Here's some more toothy daylilies from my garden and Jamie's garden this year that I think are in a class all their own.

Pictured above is Jamie Gossard's Larry's Twilight Bite.

Hope you enjoyed these pictures of some really cool toothy daylilies.  Hope to post some more patterned daylily pictures in the weeks to come.



  1. You should come visit John Benz next time you are coming down further south.

    1. I have visited John Benz on my way down to visit John Rice some years ago.

    2. I should have mentioned John's name in regards to all the great teeth hybridizers in our state. I presently grow John's Tooth and Nails and Black Horns. Tooth and Nails is a favorite of mine.

  2. Angels and Demons is the best. I like the wider petals and teeth.

    1. Thanks Di. I have just introduced it and have been sending pieces around the country. Hope it grows well for other folks.

  3. Paul if you want to send some of that Angels and Demons to North Texas to see how it does I happily volunteer lol!!!!
