The late Brother Charles Reckamp (from the Chicago area) was one of the pioneers that first hybridized daylilies with teeth almost 50 years ago. Brother Reckamp's daylily genetics are found in many of today's cutting edge "teeth" dayliles (no pun intended). Of course, today's hybridizers have taken daylily teeth to an entirely new level with some of their latest introductions.
Loving words as I do, I get caught up in the many creative daylily names with teeth references. For example: "Buzz Saw," "White Fang," "I Wanna Piranha," "Deadliest Catch," "Riding a Chainsaw," "Venus Flytrap," "Swimming with Sharks," and "Vampire's Bite." Not only are the daylilies innovative, but so are their names.
