SKIN OF MY TEETH   TET 29504 [{(Chance Encounter x Shaka Zulu) x [(Fortune`s Dearest x Lifting Me Higher) x Doyle Pierce]} x (Heartbeat of Heaven x sdlg)], 26”, M, Sev, fr, Re (incl. some MN instant rebloom) 6", 3-way (W), 15 buds (range of 14-22). Rich, clear, dark purple with etched faint dark lavender eye and edge plus ivory or ivory gold sharks teeth, yellow to green throat. Very hardy; rapid increaser; great in the rain. Usually blooms into September. Stunning when at its best. Heavy dew will cause it to spot periodically (see website), so this one got introduced by the “skin of its teeth” based on its good days and because it is an outstanding parent for beautiful clear colors with sharks teeth. Fertile both ways. Click here to see pictures of its kids. Click here to see grandkids. Click here to see great and great-great grandkids.
